A Health Tool for Retrieval of Information from Medical Records

Sophia Rajakumar


Data Mining has been used extensively and has now extended to be used efficiently in the medical domain also. Automatic learning is one in which a machine language is used to analyze the data and retrieve related information based on text input. In this paper, the automatic learning(retrieving information based on text input) is used to mine and extract data from already published reliable medical articles such as medline and providing an exact analysis of the symptoms of the disease. The results obtained prove that this kind of deciphering information is more reliable than previous methods and reliability is an important aspect in a high sensitive domain such as health care.
