Background and Aim: Neonatal jaundice is a matter that is very important for clinicians all over the world because this disease is one of the most common cases that requires clinical care. The aim of this study is to use data classification algorithms to predict the type of jaundice in neonates, and therefore, to prevent irreparable damages in future.
Materials and Methods: This is a descriptive study and is done with the use of neonatal jaundice dataset that has been collected in Cairo, Egypt. In this study, after preprocessing the data, classification algorithms such as decision tree, Naïve Bayes, and kNN (k-Nearest Neighbors) were used, compared and analyzed in Orange application.
Results: Based on the findings, decision tree with precision of 94%, Naïve Bayes with precision of 91%, and kNN with precision of 89% can classify the types of neonatal jaundice. So, among these types, the most precise classification algorithm is decision tree. 
Conclusion: Classification algorithms can be used in clinical decision support systems to help physicians make decisions about the types of special diseases; therefore, physicians can look after patients appropriately. So the probable risks for patients can be decreased.
