Abstract : This paper presents an original experiment based on frequent itemset search and lattice based classification. This work focuses on the ability of iceberg-lattices to discover and represent flows of patient within a healthcare network. We give examples of analysis of real medical data showing how Formal Concept Analysis techniques can be helpful in the interpretation step of the knowledge discovery in databases process. This combined approach has been successfully used to assist public health managers in designing healthcare networks and planning medical resources.
