ABSTRACT
Purpose:
The world has is in the era of the forth industrial revolution where various technologies and services are rapidly improving the quality of life. In the field of auditory rehabilitation, conversion to online services from offline is being attempted based on information and communication technology. The purpose of this study is to develop a web-based platform providing auditory rehabilitation programs.
Method:
The business model of the platform was designed based on the concepts and logic of the business model canvas tool. To implement the platform, we analyzed the software requirements and built a server. The usability evaluation was carried out during the prototype stage of the platform development process in order to identify, analyze and address the problems based on the results of the heuristic evaluation.
Results:
The business model was designed with four major items and nine sub-items. The platform has a web-based physical server and a virtual service environment, and it is now possible to provide auditory rehabilitation programs to specialized institutions such as hearing aid centers, ENT clinics, elderly care facilities, and disabled welfare centers. Usability test results showed that the problem was most severe in error prevention and least severe in minimalism.
Conclusion:
The web-based platform developed in this study has various advantages such as improvement of service quality, cost reduction, and expansion of market size. The platform can contribute to the online ecosystem of the audiology industry and help strengthen the network of stakeholders. Thus, this platform will enable the development of improved auditory rehabilitation programs.
Key Words: Auditory rehabilitation, Platform, Business model, Usability evaluation.
