Objectives: This study is based on Public Care Service for Chronic Diseases in Incheon Metropolitan City featuring Health-Point Service. It is objective to evaluate whether the service could improve self-management ability of hypertension and diabetes patients. Methods: The knowledge about diabetes and hypertension, which can be improved by educational intervention, is considered as one of the most important factor for self-management ability. While the education service have been conducted, 194 patients who have been diagnosed as hypertension and diabetes within 3 months were included. They completed questionnaires two times within 4 months period, which give information about the knowledge, service registration and education experiences. For further inspection, 396 patients who had been diagnosed formerly were studied by cross-sectional analysis. Results: Regardless of service registration or educational intervention, there wasn't statistically meaningful difference between the initial and the follow-up assessments on the knowledge. However, when investigating formerly diagnosed patients, educated patients had better knowledge on hypertension compared with non-educated patients and registered patients, educated patients had the better knowledge on diabetes compared with non-registered patients, non-educated patients. Additionally, analyzing each questions, educated patients got higher grades in questions about definition of hypertension, diabetes managements which they can practice in daily lives. Conclusions: It is probable that long-term service registration and education experiences could improve the knowledge and self-management ability.
