Recent advances of hardware and integrated chip have made the body-implanted medical device reality. In this paper, a chronic disease management system with implanted devices based on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) was proposed for people with chronic illnesses. We first described the architecture of the chronic disease management system. Then through analyzing the system architecture, we explained the advantages of our new system and pointed out the main issue of the short lifetime of the implanted medical devices. Then a cooperative strategy was proposed in the particular system to decrease the energy consumption, which extended the entire lifetime of all implanted devices. Finally, we evaluated the performance of our strategy with simulations.
