In health care databases, there are tireless and antagonistic interests between data mining research and privacy preservation, the more you try to hide sensitive private information, the less valuable it is for analysis. In this paper, we give an outlook on data anonymization problems by case studies. We give a summary on the state-of-the-art health care data anonymization issues including legal environment and expectations, the most common attacking strategies on privacy, and the proposed metrics for evaluating usefulness and privacy preservation for anonymization. Finally, we summarize the strength and the shortcomings of different approaches and techniques from the literature based on these evaluations.
