    Abstract

    :

    The paper describes the promising field of big data analytics in healthcare using data mining techniques. Big Data concerns large-volume, complex, growing data sets with multiple, autonomous sources. With the fast development of networking, data storage, and the data collection capacity, Big Data is now rapidly expanding for healthcare researchers and practitioners. In healthcare, data mining is becoming progressively more popular, if not increasingly essential. Healthcare industry today generates large amount of complex data about patients, hospitals resources, disease diagnosis, electronic patient records, medical devices, etc. The large amount 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 provides a set of tools and techniques that can be applied to this processed data to discover hidden patterns and also provides healthcare professionals an additional source of knowledge for making decisions. In the past few eras, data collection related to medical field saw a massive increase, referred to as big data. These massive datasets bring challenges in storage, processing, and analysis. In health care industry, big  data is expected to play an important role in prediction of patient symptoms, and hazards of disease occurrence or reoccurrence, and in improving primary-care eminence.
