The issue of health care assumes prime importance for the society and is a significant indicator of social development. Health is clearly not the mere absence of disease but confers on a person or groupÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚ÂŸs freedom from illness and the ability to realize oneÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚ÂŸs potential. Health is therefore best understood as the indispensable basis for defining a personÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚ÂŸs sense of well-being. The delivery of health care services thus assumes greater proportion, and in this context the role played by information and communication technology has certainly a greater contribution for its effective delivery mechanism. The application of data mining is specifically relevant and it has been successfully applied in medical needs for its reliable precision accuracy and expeditious beneficial results. The various available application techniques have been discussed and analyzed for the purpose of the paper.
