The healthcare data requires accurate disease detection analysis, real-time monitoring, and advancements to ensure proper treatment for patients. Consequently, Machine Learning methods are widely utilized in Smart Healthcare Systems (SHS) to extract valuable features from heterogeneous and high-dimensional healthcare data for predicting various diseases and monitoring patient activities. These methods are employed across different domains that are susceptible to adversarial attacks, necessitating careful consideration. Hence, this paper proposes a crossover-based Multilayer Perceptron (CMLP) model. The collected samples are pre-processed and fed into the crossover-based multilayer perceptron neural network to detect adversarial attacks on the medical records of patients. Once an attack is detected, healthcare professionals are promptly alerted to prevent data leakage. The paper utilizes two datasets, namely the synthetic dataset and the University of Queensland Vital Signs (UQVS) dataset, from which numerous samples are collected. Experimental results are conducted to evaluate the performance of the proposed CMLP model, utilizing various performance measures such as Recall, Precision, Accuracy, and F1-score to predict patient activities. Comparing the proposed method with existing approaches, it achieves the highest accuracy, precision, recall, and F1-score. Specifically, the proposed method achieves a precision of 93%, an accuracy of 97%, an F1-score of 92%, and a recall of 92%.
