2016 International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR)  
Data mining is the process of selecting, exploring and modeling a large database in order to discover model and pattern that are unknown. Data mining refers to extracting knowledge from large amount of data. Real life data mining approaches are interesting because they often present a different set of problems for data miners. The huge amounts of data generated by healthcare transactions are too complex and in large volume to be processed and analyzed by traditional methods. Data mining
