Machine learning has been effective in assisting the decision making and analysis of huge data produced by healthcare sector. By using machine learning model for prediction and prognosis of heart disease is now becoming an important method for treatment. This study discusses about various machine learning techniques used in predicting heart disease. This paper aims to provide a comparative analysis on various machine learning algorithms used for the prediction of heart disease.
