[Objective] This paper tries to modify the existing recommendation model for online medical experts, aiming to more effectively address health-related inquiries. [Methods] First, we identified the latent topics of online health questions with the help of Labeled-LDA model. Then, we defined the doctors’ specialties and better match them with questions. Finally, we evaluated the new model with data from http://www.39.net. [Results] The precision, recall and response adoption rates of the proposed method were 40.4%, 44.0% and 22.9%, which were much higher than those of the existing ones. [Limitations] Our method did not include factors like doctors’ responding time and their resumes. This method could not identify expertise of newly joined doctors who answered few questions. [Conclusions] The proposed model could effectively recommend physicians for patients asking questions online.
