Framework for evaluation of e-health platform and services

  Methodologies for evaluation of e-Health platforms are still lacking. This research proposes an e-Health evaluation framework that aims to provide a concise methodology for the evaluation of e-Health platforms under three main categories: usability evaluation, logistics evaluation and technical evaluation. Using simulated patient data, preliminary evaluation experiments carried out on an existing e-Health platform, known as the Cloud4Health platform, proves the viability of the defined methodology for gathering of technical evaluation metrics. Experimental results showed up to 100 simulated patient's data could interact with the Cloud4Health platform concurrently with a maximum round-trip time latency value of 6.6 seconds for data samples to be processed. Current work aims to build upon this evaluation framework and develop methodologies to gather both usability and logistics evaluation metrics when conducting evaluation of e-Health platforms.
