Abstract
Nowadays, accelerated urbanization and improving living standard have brought some unexpected negative influences, making modern citizens more suffered from chronic diseases. On the other hand, with the innovation of information technology, Web 2.0 is able to provide an accessible and unobstructed channel of communication, which attracts more patients to seek support of health problems through the Internet. Therefore, increasing researches have been focusing on improvement of effective management of online health community. It should been mentioned that community activities reflect the relationship and communication of people, which involves more or less emotional elements. Further, this may influence the management of the entire community. In this research, we utilize social network analysis and sentiment analysis to understand the pattern of communication between patients, in order to provide theoretical and technical support.
