In recent years, the volume in globally recognized medical data sets are increasing both with attributes and number of records. Machine learning algorithms aiming to detect and diagnose ischemic heart diseases requires high efficacy and judgment. The state of art Ischemic heart disease data sets presents several issues, including feature selection, sample size, sample imbalance, and lack of magnitude for some characteristics etc. The proposed study is primarily concerned with improving feature selection and reducing the number of features yet giving better decisions. In this study, to pick salient aspects of heart illness, an improved squirrel search optimization algorithm with a meta-heuristic approach is proposed. Comparison study of the proposed ischemic heart disease squirrel search optimization (IHDSSO) model in conjunction with random forest classifier ensures better feature selection and accuracy over 98% with respect to other state-of-the-art optimization algorithms.
