This paper presents a new diagnostic model for various diseases. In the proposed diagnostic model, a water wave optimization (WWO) algorithm was implemented for improving the diagnosis accuracy. It was observed that the WWO algorithm suffered from the absence of global best information and premature convergence problems. Therefore in this work, some improvements were proposed to formulate the WWO algorithm as more promising and efficient. The global best information issue was addressed by using an improved solution search equation and the aim of this was to explore the global best optimal solution. Furthermore, a premature convergence problem was rectified by using a decay operator. These improvements were incorporated in the propagation and refraction phases of the WWO algorithm. The proposed algorithm was integrated into a diagnostic model for the analysis of healthcare data. The proposed algorithm aimed to improve the diagnosis accuracy of various diseases. The diverse disease datasets were considered for implementing the performance of the proposed diagnostic model based on accuracy and F-score performance indicators, while the existing techniques were regarded to compare the simulation results. The results confirmed that the WWO-based diagnostic model achieved a higher accuracy rate as compared to existing models/techniques with most disease/healthcare datasets. Therefore, it stated that the proposed diagnostic model is more promising and efficient for the diagnosis of different diseases.
