Asthma is a chronic disease, which requires a successive and long-term management. In this paper, we implemented a web-based caring system for a more effective management of the asthmatics. The service of this asthmatic-caring system targeted on both the doctor and the patient. The patient connects to the asthma management server through the Internet everyday and inputs his or her daily condition and dosage. Then the doctor will give a proper comment or order to the patient according to the data that patient has filled in. By merely connecting to this web-site, doctors can manage asthmatics everyday and the patient can be under the doctor's management without frequently visiting the hospital. The test verifying the user's satisfaction of the implemented system has been taken by both the doctor- and the patient-groups. The doctor-group pointed out the successive management, an easy inspection of the patient condition, and the accumulation of clinical data for future researches as advantages. The patientgroup pointed out being under the daily management without visiting hospital and the active attitude they can have toward their diseases as advantages.
