- The medical care industry has been dramatically developed in the last two decades in Taiwan and it has resulted in an extremely risky position. The purpose of the research was the development of a neural network model to recognize profitable customers for dental services marketing. Data set was built up from proprietary customer databases and survey of seven dental clinics in Taiwan. The result reveals that the prediction accuracy of the model is greater than the discriminant analysis model. The evidence suggests that the model is useful in recognizing existing patterns of customers’ data.
