Objectives We analyzed and organized present studies related to medical care for the disabled to establish an appropriate model of visiting health management for the people with disability. Methods To analyse study of medical care for the disabled, 11 electonic databases (PubMed, Chinese Academic Journals, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, Medline, Oasis, KMBASE, KISS, KISTI, NDSL, RISS) were searched from 2009 to 2018. There's no limit to the type of study. Results The search showed 20 domestic studies and 113 foreign studies that were screened for final inclusion of 37 studies. The all of domestic studies were relevant to dental research. The foreign studies have reported on the treatment of underlying diseases and medical services for the disabled. Conclusions Most studies have reported that government institutional support were needed for systematic treatment of the disabled. In the future, institutional support would be needed to establish the model of oriental doctor's visiting health management for the disabled.
