The healthcare sector faces unprecedented challenges due to global population growth, aging trends, and the continuous outbreak of diseases. This paper explores the significance and potential of big data applications in healthcare. We discuss challenges such as population aging, chronic disease management, and infectious disease transmission, highlighting big data's role in addressing these issues. We examine big data application mining methods, including data collection, storage, preprocessing, cleaning, and analysis, with applications in disease prediction, early diagnosis, clinical decision support, and epidemiological research, illustrated through case studies. Challenges encompass data privacy, ethics, data cleaning, integration, and model interpretability, necessitating continuous technological innovation. Future trends include enhanced data privacy, technological innovation, and interdisciplinary collaboration. Collaboration among research institutions, healthcare organizations, and government agencies is encouraged to advance big data application mining and contribute to healthcare progress. Overcoming challenges and embracing opportunities promises a healthier and more prosperous future.
