Decision Tree Induction (DTI), one of the Data Mining classification methods, is used in this research for predictive problem solving in analyzing patient medical track records. In this paper, we extend the concept of DTI dealing with meaningful fuzzy labels in order to express human knowledge for mining fuzzy association rules. Meaningful fuzzy labels (using fuzzy sets) can be defined for each domain data. For example, fuzzy labels poor disease, moderate disease, and severe disease are defined

In the process of generating fuzzy association rules, we propose some fuzzy measures to calculate their support, confidence and correlation. The designed application gives a significant contribution to assist decision maker for analyzing and anticipating disease epidemic in a certain area.
