The need for home health care has been increasing in Japan and the expectation is to apply advanced technology to home health care in order to promote it. We already studied the development of a home care support information system using a personal computer and a telephone set with multifunction. In the present study a new system using a new telephone terminal was developed in order to increase flexibility. To work out the concrete social system in the near future, a model of a PHD (Personal Health Data) management system was constructed and tested. Experimental studies were conducted by physicians and public health nurses. The model system would be useful for daily monitoring of home patients in the chronic stage of a disease and for dealing with their emergency states.
