Abstract: Weighing only 300 grams, Heart is declining the mortality rate at a rapid pace from decades. The major factors that contribute to it are smoking, drinking, unbalanced diet, and many more. Even with these more technical advancements the analysis of the clinical data is a critical challenge. With the use of Machine Learning techniques, it is possible to analyse the data and interpret the cause that lead to heart diseases such as Coronary Heart Disease, Arrhythmia, and Dilated Cardiomyopathy. Many researchers are developing IoT enabled hardware to predict these diseases using various ML and DM techniques. In this study, we propose a novel method to determine the disease using Cleveland Heart Disease Dataset by combining the computational power of various ML and DM algorithms and concluded that among all the algorithms, K-Nearest Neighbors gives the highest accuracy of 87%. Along with this, a web app is developed using flask in python with which the user can enter the attributes and predict the heart disease.
