Software engineering can be characterized as the definite examination of the engineering to the structure, the improvement and the support of the software. Software engineering models and methods are imposed on software architecture in order to make this movement efficient, repeatable and at last oriented towards success. Utilizing the models can be used in order to provide the way to deal with critical thinking, documentation, and strategies for the model development and the investigation. The Chronic Care Model (CCM) can be defined as the organizing framework which is used to improve the incessant ailment care and an astounding apparatus for improving consideration at both the individual and populace level. In this paper, one of the important CCM model parts, which is Self-management Support, will be improved in order to make the model more efficiency in the processing.
