Abstract:The field of eHealth has steadily grown and developed since the early 2000’s, but the available tools by which to evaluate their usability have changed little. Patient-facing eHealth technologies are those that bring internet technology into the healthcare sector for the purpose of detecting, treating, managing, or educating on various medical conditions. As such, there are a vast number of usability considerations unique to eHealth technologies that arise out of this mesh between internet technology and the healthcare domain. This research has developed a framework that takes into account these unique usability considerations. The new framework will then go on in future research to serve as the scaffolding for a new tool for evaluating the usability of eHealth technologies. By taking into consideration the unique characteristics of eHealth technologies, this framework and consequent usability benchmarking tool will have an advantage over existing tools for thorough and context-sensitive usability evaluations of patient-facing eHealth technologies.
