Data mining and Healthcare • Healthcare industry today generates large amounts of complex data about patients, hospitals resources, disease diagnoses, electronic patient records, medicaldevices etc. • The large amounts of data is a key resource to be processed and analyzed for knowledge extraction that enables support for cost-savings and decision making. • Data mining • - provide healthcare professionals an additional source of knowledge for making decisions • The decisions rests with health care professionals.
Data Mining Strategies Figure : Data mining techniques 
Healthcare Data Mining Applications • There is vast potential for data mining applications in • healthcare. • Treatment effectiveness • Healthcare management • Customer relationship management • Fraud and abuse
1. Treatment effectiveness • “United Healthcare has mined its treatment record data to explore ways to cut costs and deliver better medicine” . • “In 1999, Florida Hospital has launched the clinical best practices initiative with the goal of developing a standard path of care across all campuses, clinicians and patient admissions”.
2. Healthcare management • “In Seton Medical Center, for maintaining and improving the quality of healthcare , data mining is used to decrease length of stay, avoid clinical complications, develop best practices, improve patient outcomes and provide information to physicians”. • “Blue cross also use data mining applications to improve outcomes and reduce expenditures through better disease management”. • “Data mining is also used for hospital infection control or an automated early- warning system. Global spread of SARS virus is an example of early warning system”.
3. Customer relationship management • “The identification of usage and purchase patterns and the eventual satisfaction can be used to improve overall customer satisfaction”. • “Customer Potential Management Corp. has developed a Consumer Healthcare Utilization Index, based on millions of healthcare transaction of million patient” . • - “OSF Saint Joseph Medical Center uses this Index to get right message and services to the most appropriate patients at strategic times and as a result more effective and efficient communication and increased revenue”. • CRM help to promote disease education, prevention and wellness services.
4. Fraud and Abuse • “Utah Bureau of Medicaid Fraud has mined the mass of data generated by millions of prescriptions, operations and treatment courses to identify unusual patterns and uncover fraud”. • “ReliaStar Financial Corp. has reported a 20 percent increase in annual savings, Wisconsin Physician’s Service Insurance Corporation has noted significant savings,3 and the Australian Health Insurance Commission has estimated tens of millions of dollars of annual savings”. • “Texas Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Detection System, which recovered $2.2 million and identified 1,400 suspects for investigation in 1998 after operating for less than a year”.
