Applying Data Mining Techniques to a Health Insurance Information System

  title={Applying Data Mining Techniques to a Health Insurance Information System},
  author={Marisa S. Viveros and John P. Nearhos and Michael J. Rothman},
This paper addresses the effectiveness of two data mining techniques in analyzing and retrieving unknown behavior patterns from gigabytes of data collected in the health insurance industry. [...] Key Method Association rules were applied to the episode database; neural segmentation was applied to the overlaying of both databases. The results obtained from this study demonstrate the potential value of data mining in health insurance information systems, by detecting patterns in the ordering of pathology services…Expand

This paper presents the experiences of the authors and others in applying exploratory data mining techniques to medical, health and clinical data and provides pointers to possible areas of future research in data mining and knowledge discovery more broadly. Expand
Forecasting Association Rules Using Existing Data Sets
This paper provides a novel model for understanding how the differences between two situations affect the changes of the rules, based on the concept of fine partitioned groups that they call caucuses, and provides a simple technique to get a good estimate of the set of rules for a new situation.
