This research aims to develop a technique to measure healthcare data of non-communicable disease (diabetes, hypertension etc.) patients and score their health status. We introduce two different scoring mechanism and apply the methods on our Portable Health Clinic (PHC) patients to verify the effectiveness of the obtained scores. PHC has a triage to classify the patients in four colored groups (green, yellow, orange and red) depending on the severity of their status. These color codes were designed based on WHO's recommendations. On the top of the triage, we applied two mechanisms (a) a simple decimal scoring system, and (b) mathematically obtained weighted score to determine wellness score of a patient. We applied the technique on 5895 patients to see the average wellness score of each patient and displayed them against the age. The displayed graph shows the trend that the younger people have more wellness score. The obtained results match with our traditional wisdom. We want to observe health status of individual patient to verify the accuracy of the scoring system.
