This paper deals with selection of appropriate indexing techniques applied on MySQL database for a health care system and its related performance issues. The proposed Smart Card based Online Health Care System deals with frequent data storage, exchange and retrieval of data from the database servers. Speed and accuracy is of primary concern of the system. An approach towards the actualization of this proposal requires through analysis of performance related issues. B-Tree indexing technique is applied in most of the cases but other indexing techniques such as Hash and Bitmap are also used as per the requirement for fast retrieval of patient information from health care database. Suitable memory management and indexing techniques are analyzed and proposed for fast and accurate data retrieval from the system.
