Few years ago, the information flow in health care field was relatively simple and the application of technology was limited. However, as we progress into a more integrated world where technology has become an integral part of the business processes, the process of transfer of information has become more complicated. There has already been a long standing tradition for computer-based decision support, dealing with complex problems in medicine such as diagnosing disease, managerial decisions and assisting in the prescription of appropriate treatment. Today, one of the biggest challenges that health care system, face is the explosive growth of data, use this data to improve the quality of managerial decisions. Web mining and Data mining techniques are analytical tools that can be used to extract meaningful knowledge from large data sets. This paper addresses the applications of web mining and data mining in health care management system to extract useful information from the huge data sets and providing analytical tool to view and use this information for decision making processes by taking real life examples. Further we propose the IDSS model for the health care so that exact and accurate decision can be taken for the removal of a particular disease.
