Abstract: Owing to the increasing developments in this digitised era, it is necessary to move from paper health records to digital by handling the large volume of healthcare data for analysis, and using them for efficient treatment will be a crucial issue. Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is one of the Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD). It is a major health hazard in developing countries and associated with long-term complications and numerous health disorders. The main idea of this project is to integrate massive unstructured diabetic data from various sources which need to be normalised into a proper scale to get optimised solution for medicinal field using Hadoop. Although the traditional database management systems can handle data effectively, processing the high volume of unstructured data at a reasonable time becomes very challenging. This paper uses the predictive analysis algorithm in the Hadoop/MapReduce environment to predict the DM complexities and the type of treatment to be adopted. Based on the analysis, this system provides an efficient way to cure patients with better outcomes.
