Cardiovascular disease has become one of the most critical chronic diseases today. In this paper, we proposed an agent-based system for cardiovascular disease patients to assess the risk and to monitor their health situation by themselves. There are two main objectives of this development: First, to help the people to assess their risk in cardiovascular disease based on the evidence-based medicine, and provides people with the knowledge of risk factors of cardiovascular disease; second, to collect the patient’s health information for a period of time, and then facilitate the physicians to take follow-up of the cardiac patients. The intelligent software agents are served for communication between patients and physicians, and for managing the patient’s information. This system is implemented on a web-based application; therefore the people can use it anytime and anywhere.
