ABSTRACT In today’s modern world cardiovascular disease is the most lethal one. This disease attacks a person so instantly that it hardly gets any time to get treated with. So diagnosing patients correctly on timely basis is the most challenging task for the medical fraternity. A wrong diagnosis by the hospital leads to earn a bad name and loosing reputation. At the same time treatment of the said disease is quite high and not affordable by most of the patients particularly in India. The purpose of this paper is to develop a cost effective treatment using data mining technologies for facilitating data base decision support system. Almost all the hospitals use some hospital management system to manage healthcare in patients. Unfortunately most of the systems rarely use the huge clinical data where vital information is hidden. As these systems create huge amount of data in varied forms but this data is seldom visited and remain untapped. So, in this direction lots of efforts are required to make intelligent decisions.
