The health sector has witnessed a great evolution following the development of new computer technologies, and that pushed this area to produce more medical data, which gave birth to multiple fields of research. Many efforts are done to cope with the explosion of medical data on one hand, and to obtain useful knowledge from it on the other hand. This prompted researchers to apply all the technical innovations like big data analytics, predictive analytics, machine learning and learning algorithms in order to extract useful knowledge and help in making decisions. With the promises of predictive analytics in big data, and the use of machine learning algorithms, predicting future is no longer a difficult task, especially for medicine because predicting diseases and anticipating the cure became possible. In this paper we will present an overview on the evolution of big data in healthcare system, and we will apply a learning algorithm on a set of medical data. The objective is to predict chronic kidney diseases by using Decision Tree (C4.5) algorithm.
