Health informatics is currently one of the top focuses of computer science researchers. Availability of timely and accurate data is essential for medical decision making. Health care organizations face a common problem with the large amount of data they have in numerous systems. Researchers, health care providers and patients will not be able to utilize the knowledge stored in different repositories unless amalgamate the information from disparate sources is done. This problem can be solved by Data warehousing. Data warehousing techniques share a common set of tasks, include requirements analysis, data design, architectural design, implementation and deployment. Developing health data warehouse is complex and time consuming but is also essential to deliver quality health services. This paper depicts prospects and complexities of health data warehousing and mining and illustrate a data-warehousing model suitable for integrating data from different health care sources to discover effective knowledge.
