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…

A Novel Method for Mining Abnormal Behaviors in Social Medical Insurance

Experiments show that the consistent behavior mining algorithm based on frequent pattern mining has better performance than Apriori and Eclat, can effectively detect the aggregation behavior of medical insurance, and has achieved remarkable results in the management and supervision ofmedical insurance.

Data Mining Driven Learning Apprentice System For Medical Billing Compliance

This research proves that rule based programming is more efficient than conventional programming techniques, and lays down a framework for utilization of data mining concepts to provide a sustained supply of knowledge to a rule based system at runtime.

Application of Data Mining and CRM inBanking Sector Medical Insurance

In this paper, an attempt is made to improve the relationship between bank and it’s customers by using data mining technique along with customer relationship management (CRM).

Healthcare fraud detection : A survey and a clustering model incorporating Geolocation information

Preliminary knowledge of the U.S. health care system and its fraudulent behaviors is introduced, the characteristics of health care data are analyzed, and currently proposed fraud detection approaches using health careData in the literature as well as their corresponding data preprocess methods are reviewed.

Applications: Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery in Databases – An Overview

It is concluded that statistical thinking and design of analysis, as exemplified by achievements in clinical epidemiology, may fit well with the emerging activities of data mining and 'knowledge discovery in databases' (DM&KDD).

This work proposes an improved decision tree algorithm to effectively model medical data, which includes processes of pre-pruning and post-pruned, and results show that the proposed model can improve the decision making with higher flexibility and efficiency.

Data Mining for the Unique Identification of Patients in the National Healthcare Systems

This paper considers the application of data mining (DM) algorithms as a feasible and necessary strategy for optimal management of databases (DB) in the national healthcare systems and believes that DM algorithms are appropriate for this task and human intervention should be minimized.

Exploratory medical knowledge discovery: experiences and issues

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.

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.



Mining association rules between sets of items in large databases

An efficient algorithm is presented that generates all significant association rules between items in the database of customer transactions and incorporates buffer management and novel estimation and pruning techniques.

Fast Algorithms for Mining Association Rules

Two new algorithms for solving thii problem that are fundamentally different from the known algorithms are presented and empirical evaluation shows that these algorithms outperform theknown algorithms by factors ranging from three for small problems to more than an order of magnitude for large problems.
