With advancements in information and communication technology (ICT), there is an increase in the number of users availing remote healthcare applications. The data collected about the patients in these applications varies with respect to volume, velocity, variety, veracity, and value. To process such a large collection of heterogeneous data is one of the biggest challenges that needs a specialized approach. To address this issue, a new fuzzy rule-based classifier for big data handling using cloud-based infrastructure is presented in this paper, with an aim to provide Healthcare-as-a-Service (HaaS) to the users located at remote locations. The proposed scheme is based upon the cluster formation using the modified Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm and processing of the big data on the cloud environment. Then, a fuzzy rule-based classifier is designed for an efficient decision making about the data classification in the proposed scheme. The proposed scheme is evaluated with respect to different evaluation metrics such as classification time, response time, accuracy and false positive rate. The results obtained are compared with the standard techniques to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
