Management of chronic diseases is important to self-management for health. The IoT concept plays a significant role in self-management for health. In order to accomplish it, personal health devices need two functions such as application network protocol and intelligent service. But, most of them have only simple function such as indicating measured data and storing data temporarily. In this research, we proposed an intelligent service model for healthcare which gives an effective feedback to an

In addition to this, we proposed intellectualized service application algorithm which will be operated in the personal health device. Finally, based on the findings of the experiment, the effectiveness was confirmed on proposed model. The assessment result which only applied the diagnostic guide of the blood pressure measurement value and the assessment result which considered each risk factor were compared in order to confirm the effectiveness of the suggested model. The acquisition method of the assessment result involved modeling virtual IOT applications from the Linux system and conducting the experiment where suggested protocol message are sent a 100 times. In the experiment, a total of 1000 virtual sample patient data were produced per session and Figure 6 is a display of the result. In Figure 6 , (a) displays how the number of experiments where blood pressure was assessed as 'normal' decreased significantly (Normal+) when comprehensive consideration was given to risk factors. However, in case of 'warning' in (b), the number of assessment actually increased significantly (Warning+).
