The domain medical and public health remains the principal preoccupation of all world population. It makes recourse at several means from various disciplines, including for instance epidemiology, to help clinicians in decision processes. This paper proposes an Assistance Platform for Epidemiological Searches and Surveillance (APESS) for service-oriented data mining in the field of epidemiology. The main aim of the present platform is to build a system that enables extracting predictive rules, flexible and scalable for aid in decision-making by trades' experts. Results showed that the current system provides prediction models of chronic diseases (epidemiological prediction rules), using classification algorithms.
