There are multiple commercial eHealth platforms and research projects working in this type of system, but only some of them take into account patients´ interaction. This paper presents an approach of eHealth system based on user centered design. To achieve a user centered design system, a multidisciplinary development team has been cooperated. The proposed system permits the communication between doctor and patient with chronic diseases through the information exchange in a simple and efficient way. With this system we can analyse the important of the feedback provided to the patient and follow her/his evolution online detecting deviations faster than with the traditional health systems. The system has been tested by doctors and patients with different chronic diseases, and objectives and subjective results – obtained by surveys- are promising.
