Growth of mobile technologies and smart devices in Healthcare domains leads to patient self-control of chronic and non-chronic diseases, facilitating the real time communication with the physician. This work describes the basis of a health aspect-based framework to monitor multiple diseases by using the smartphone and the interaction with smart devices. Aspects comprise information about patient and disease, and these are used to study monitoring behaviors and goals depending on the disease.
