An Adaptive Parameter Free Data Mining Approach for Healthcare Application

In today's world, healthcare is the most important factor affecting human life. Due to heavy work load it is not possible for personal healthcare. The proposed system acts as a preventive measure for determining whether a person is fit or unfit based on his/her historical and real time data by applying clustering algorithms viz. K-means and D-stream. Both clustering algorithms are applied on patient's biomedical historical database. To check the correctness of both the algorithms, the authors apply them on patient's current biomedical data. The Density-based clustering algorithm i.e. the D-stream algorithm overcomes drawbacks of K-means algorithm. By calculating their performance measures they finally find out effectiveness and efficiency of both the algorithms.
