Heart disease is a deadly disease that large population of people around the world suffers from. When considering death rates and large number of people who suffers from heart disease, it is revealed how important early diagnosis of heart disease. Traditional way of diagnosis is not sufficient for such an illness. Developing a medical diagnosis system based on machine learning for prediction of heart disease provides more accurate diagnosis than traditional way. In this paper, a heart disease prediction system which uses artificial neural network backpropagation algorithm is proposed. 13 clinical features were used as input for the neural network and then the neural network was trained with backpropagation algorithm to predict absence or presence of heart disease with accuracy of 95%.
