We applied the data mining technique to medical near-miss cases collected by a foundation related to the Japanese Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry, and extracted information such as pairs of confusing medicines, the cause of near-miss cases in some situations, which cannot be obtained by simple aggregation calculations and descriptive statistics. We also introduce the results of text mining applied to the free-description data regarding the backgrounds and causes of near-miss cases and their counter measures.
