Along with the growth of numbers of patients with chronic diseases, personal health self-management becomes critical. The heterogeneity of self-management requirements makes the detail design and implementation of self-management program a non-trivial work. In this paper we address the problem with the Personal Health Advisor (PHA) application by introducing a personal health data flow mechanism, as well as modules including personal health risk assessment, similar patients profiling, and health question answering.
