Analysis of healthcare data becomes a tedious task as large volume of unlabelled information is generated. In this article, an algorithm is proposed to reduce the complexity involved in analysis of healthcare data. The proposed algorithm predicts the health status of elderly from the data collected at health centres by utilizing PCA (principle component analysis) and SVM (support vector machine) algorithms. The performance of proposed algorithm is assessed by comparing it with well-known methods like quadratic Discriminant, linear Discriminant, logistic regression, KNN weighted and SVM medium Gaussian using F-measure. At that point, the pre-prepared information is subjected to the dimensionality decrease process by playing out the Feature Selection errand. So, chosen component analysis are investigated by the proposed work SVM-based enhanced recursive element determination, and its precision is assessed and contrasted with the other customary classifiers, for example, quadratic Discriminant, Linear Discriminant, Logistic Regression, KNN Weighted and SVM Medium Gaussian. Here, we built up a shrewd versatile information module for the remote procurement and transmission of EHR (Electronic Health Record) chronicles, together with an online watcher for showing the EHR datasets on a PC, advanced cell or tablet. So as to characterize the highlights required by clients, we demonstrated the elderly checking system in home and healing facility settings. Utilizing this data, we built up a portable information exchange module in light of a Raspberry Pi.
