Abstract: China has long faced the problem of having health care that is difficult to access. Online patient-provider communication (OPPC) may offer a new option for the delivery of affordable health services in a timely manner. However, OPPC is still novel in China, particularly among middle-aged and older adults. Thus, to promote effective use of OPPC for these population groups, the current study implemented a four-week Internet-based intervention program, with a general basis of Social Cognitive Theory. With analyses of three-wave panel data, the results offer the promise of this intervention program in increasing usage frequency, quality of users' experience, self-efficacy, behavioral capability, and awareness of OPPC. This Internet-based intervention program also provides important implications for future research, practice, and policy in promoting e-Health in China.
