Data mining is one of the techniques to find hidden information in large amounts of data and it has been widely used in many areas as in communication, credit assessment, marketing, , health and medicine, stock market prediction, knowledge acquisition, hazard forecasting, banking, scientific discovery, education, fraud detection, etc., but data mining is significantly applied to medicine for the diagnosis of several diseases such as skin cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, diabetes, liver disorder, heart disease, kidney failure, kidney stone, hepatitis etc. This paper discusses the data mining applications in medical and healthcare industry including analysis of data for better gaining results in preventing the occurrence of various errors in hospitals, early detection and prevention of various diseases and saving more lives by reducing death rates. The success of medical data mining depends on the provided clean medical data resources.
