Abstract

Health promotion represents the principal process to empowerment the citizens. The health models focus on helping people to prevent illnesses through their behavior, and on looking at ways in which a person can pursue better health. Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) may play an important role in the definition and use of these health models; ICT solutions allow exchange of information between health professionals, communities, producers of health research and other actors health. Starting from the current models, we propose a new model that identifies the principle actions to improve behavior and health of the citizens, highlighting specific aspects of daily life and proponing ICT solutions to allow the implementation of these actions.
