There are calls for enhancing present healthcare sectors when it comes to handling huge data size of patients' records. The huge files contain lots of duplicate copies. Therefore, the ideal of compression comes into play. Image data compression removes redundant copies (multiple unnecessary copies) that increase the storage space and transmission bandwidth. Image data compression is pivotal as it helps reduce image file size and speeds up file transmission rate over the internet through

Therefore this report presents data compression implementation for healthcare systems using a proposed scheme of discrete wavelet transform (DWT), Fourier transform (FT) and Fast Fourier transform with capacity of compressing and recovering medical image data without data loss. Healthcare images such as those of human heart and brain need fast transmission for reliable and efficient result. Using DWT which has optimal reconstruction quality greatly improves compression. A representation of enabling innovations in communication technologies with big data for health monitoring is achievable through effective data compression techniques. Our experimental implementation shows that using Haar wavelet with parametric determination of MSE and PSNR solve our aims. Many imaging techniques were also deployed to further ascertain DWT method's efficiency such as image compression and image de-noising. The proposed compression of medical image was excellent. It is essential to reduce the size of data sets by employing compression procedures to shrink storage space, reduce transmission rate, and limit massive energy usage in health monitoring systems. The motivation for this work was to implement compression method to modify traditional healthcare platform to lower file size, and reduce cost of operation. Image compression aims at reconstructing images from extensively lesser estimations than were already thought necessary in relations with non-zero coefficients. Rationally, fewer well-chosen interpretations is adequate to reproduce the new sample exactly as the source image. We look at DWT to implement our compression method.
