Health awareness together with the improvement in living conditions and treatment has increased the life expectancy of people suffers from chronic disease; nevertheless without efficient health management and monitoring, the quality of life is decreased (Whitehead, Seaton, 2016). Progressive growth in computer-mediated technologies such as social networking, smartphones and medical applications provide a useful platform for self-health management and awareness. Towards empowering people in practicing self-health management, individuals who suffers from chronic disease need to have access to timely information, advice, assessment and treatment from medical practitioners in order for them to manage their long-term illnesses conditions systematically (Zoffmann et al. 2016).
