La educomunicación en línea y el empoderamiento son dimensiones cruciales en los procesos de concienciación, alfabetización y cambio, y su articulación puede aportar beneficios a la salud cardiovascular, dado que las enfermedades cardiovasculares son las más mortíferas del mundo, incluso en Portugal. Este trabajo pretende explorar la relación entre educomunicación online y empoderamiento en salud cardiovascular, utilizando como caso los residentes del municipio de Lisboa. El marco teórico está compuesto por el modelo de interactividad y empoderamiento, el modelo de creencias en salud y la teoría de usos y gratificaciones. El cuestionario se aplica a una muestra por cuotas de sexo y edad (N=400). El cuestionario incluye dimensiones temáticas, como las prácticas informativas en línea sobre salud cardiovascular, la escala eHEALS, la importancia y la eficacia de las características del mensaje educomunicativo sobre salud cardiovascular. Los resultados muestran que el mensaje educomunicativo tiene características a nivel de propósito, contenido, tipo, formato, emociones y lógica, que lo realzan más, según la evaluación de los encuestados. Esto indica que la exposición a mensajes con estas características puede instigar la capacitación y el cambio de comportamiento. Los encuestados se autocalificaron con los niveles más positivos en la escala eHEALS, lo que demuestra su capacitación a nivel de eSalud, con diferencias más de edad que género. Existen pruebas de que las competencias en eSalud y el hecho de padecer una enfermedad cardiovascular influyen en la búsqueda de información y en la capacitación.
