Chronic cardiovascular diseases directly account for millions of deaths, billions of Euros and a big number of disabilities affecting the world's population. Even though primary and secondary prevention factors are well known, the awareness and the concern of citizens and patients is not big enough to cause a significant change in lifestyle that modifies the increasing trends. Patients and families, professionals and healthcare systems are not prepared to fight against this burden in an effective and aligned way. Some disease management programmes based on ICT solutions have and are currently being tested around the world but their relative impaction has been very limited. This paper proposes a new turn into Personal Health Systems applied to chronic disease management by increasing the capabilities for personalization, providing the patients with motivation and coaching support and enabling the work of the professionals with intelligent tools for strategic and clinical decision making based on the newest medical evidence.
