The risk factors of chronic degenerative diseases are related to daily life style such as lack of exercise, obesity, smoking, stress, insufficient sleep, and etc. This study is conducted to develop a computerized system that check-up, guide and manage the residents' health through life-span. The morbidity of chronic degenerative diseases such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus and arthritis has been high in the survey on community health needs. These diseases are selected as the object of the study. The subjects who register as a health management member are over 40 and under 65 years old in the community. The combined approach method to individuals and groups is applied to the health management. The modeling of database for the system is constructed by entity-relationship model and relational data model. The subjects are classified into three groups of health, borderline and disease, on the basis of their clinical test result and daily life style. The intensive health care is provided to the subjects according to the result of analysis. We anticipate the community health promotion through the life style modification of the subjects by this intensive health care system.
