Objective: Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and Artificial Neural Network (ANN) are two broadly used for rule generation process in data mining. ANN have been widely used for pattern extraction from medical databases. Methods: Heart disease is one of the leading death cause disease in all over the world in the present situation. A large number of research works have been carried out for diagnosing heart failures using data mining techniques. As the number of heart disease features increasing along with a number of instances, the traditional approaches such as PSO, ANN and BPSO are fail to predict the exact disease causing features. Findings: In this research work, an improved ANN approach model called Optimized Artificial Neural Network (OANN) was implemented on the medical data sets. In this paper, an Optimized Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) technique is used for disease dimension reduction. Filter based Artificial Neural Network is used for classifying the disease type as positive or negative based on the disease features. Applications/Improvements: The performance of the proposed algorithm is analyzed by using the traditional approaches of Performance plot, Regression, ROC Value and Confusion Matrix. It is proved that the performance of the whole ANN network is optimized after the inclusion of proposed PSO for Feature Reduction.
