Abstract
One of the main difficulties faced by public health management is the aging of the population and, consequently, the growing of chronic diseases. Those diseases ¿contributed approximately to 59% of the total reported deaths in the world and 46% of the global burden of disease¿. Hence, including prevention strategies able to motivate and empower citizens to be responsible for their own health in public health planning remains a crucial topic. Ubiquitous e-health systems providing quality and personalized information can be regarded as a fit-for-purpose solution to involve users in taking control of their lifestyle and effectively managing their own healthcare. This work aims at developing and evaluating a system that provides personalized information in order to incorporate healthy lifestyles to the users¿ daily activities. In order to ensure the success of the system, the evaluation and validation by experts must be considered a crucial step in the development activity.
