Résumé : Periodic general health examinations (GHEs) are gradually becoming more popular as they employ subclinical screenings as a means of early detection. This study considers the effect of information technology (IT), health communications and the public’s attitude towards GHEs in Vietnam. A total of 2,068 valid observations were obtained from a survey in Hanoi and its surrounding areas, out of which 42.12% said they were willing to use IT applications to recognise illness symptoms, nearly 2/3 of them rated the healthcare quality at average level or below. The data, which is processed by the BCL model, has shown that IT applications (apps) reduce hesitation toward GHEs, however, older peopleseem to have less confidence in using these apps. Health communications and government’s subsidy also increase the likelihood of people attending periodic GHEs. The probability of early check-ups where there is a cash subsidy could reach approximately 80%.
