A Hybrid Data Mining Method for the Medical Classification of Chest Pain

By Sung Ho Ha and Seong Hyeon Joo

Abstract

Abstract—Data mining techniques have been used in medical research for many years and have been known to be effective. In order to solve such problems as long-waiting time, congestion, and delayed patient care, faced by emergency departments, this study concentrates on building a hybrid methodology, combining data mining techniques such as association rules and classification trees. The methodology is applied to real-world emergency data collected from a hospital and is evaluated by comparing with other techniques. The methodology is expected to help physicians to make a faster and more accurate classification of chest pain diseases. Keywords—Data mining, medical decisions, medical domain knowledge, chest pain.
