There is a steady increase of number of people who are suffering from lifestyle-related diseases. Although much work has been done on healthcare support system, these existing systems are limited in ability of healthcare support service. This paper proposes an agent-based framework for advanced healthcare support system. In order to provide useful information for healthcare of an object person, not only to him/herself but also to the related people of that person, the system needs to acquire variety of information, knowledge, data, etc. and store/manage them in a systematic manner. This paper mainly focuses on the concept and design of the system, and also we describe the implementation details of several functions for the healthcare.
