Health Status Index

An index that uses weights to compare different levels of health status; can be used to calculate the total number of Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALYs). A general mathematical formulation of the health status index model is established. Equations may then be given for three types of population health indexes and for the measurement of health improvement created by a health care program.
