Software reuse is a subfield of software engineering that is used to adopt the existing software for similar purposes. Reuse Metrics determine the extent to which an existing software component is reused in new software with an objective to minimize the errors and cost of the new project. In this paper, medical database related to cardiology is considered. The Pearson Type-I Distribution is used to calculate the probability density function and thereby utilizing it for clustering the data. Further, coupling methodology is used to bring out the similarity of the new patient data by comparing it with the existing data. By this, the concerned treatment to be followed for the new patient is deduced by comparing with that of the previous patients' case history.
