Globally the healthcare sector is abundant with data and hence using data mining techniques in this area seems promising. Healthcare sector collects huge amounts of data on a daily basis. Transferring data into secure electronic system of medical health can save lives and reduce the cost of healthcare services as well as early discovery of contagious diseases with advanced collection of medical data. In this study we have proposed a best fit for data mining techniques in healthcare based on a case study. The proposed framework aims to provide self healthcare treatments where by several monitoring equipments using the cyberspace devices have been developed to help patients manage their medical conditions at home for example, diabetic patients can test their blood sugar level by using e-device, which, with the click of a computer mouse, downloads the results to a healthcare practitioner, minimizes time to wait for medical treatments, and minimizes the delay time in providing medical treatments. Data mining is a new technology used in different types of sectors to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of business model as well as solving problems in business world.
