Ayurveda needs to keep up with the rapid evolution and constant innovation of technologies that are impacting and interacting with the advances in conventional medicine worldwide.
"HIS provides option to document apt diagnosis with the reference of ICD codes. Ayurveda diagnosis is possible with
the help of ICD codes and will be able to be specific in writing the diagnosis. Quick, systematic accessibility of lab
service and report details. Well applicable in In-patients. Its documentation in progress notes and the discharge
summary in chronological order gives the progress of the patient condition in due course of treatment."
Dr. Rajeshwari PN, Associate Professor and Consultant, Amrita School of Ayurveda and Hospital
"One of the main features which attracted me in Amrita HIS is its approach towards documentation of patient’s clinical data.
Whether it be the lab results, the clinical examination details or any of that kinda stuff, those details are accessible from
anywhere from the hospital at any time. This helps the physician to make decisions effectively. The discharge summaries
generated form HIS is in a standardized format and is accepted as authentic proof for patient’s health status."
Dr. Parameshwaran Namboothiri,Panchakarma, Associate Professor and Consultant, Amrita School of Ayurveda and Hospital
An intellectual fusion of Ayurveda, biomedicine, and information technology will most certainly lead to a reduction in the gap between the technological development of Ayurvedic and conventional medicine
100+ doctors from an Ayurvedic center of Southern India, the respondents to a survey, concurred that the HIT application, such
as electronic health record, has the potentials to reduce the duplication of documentation work, is easy and has an instant processing and real-time access to patient information
Data science in digital health have grown significantly offering exciting opportunities to monitor health-related data in populations that adopt an Ayurvedic lifestyle and use the data to perform meaningful studies (e.g., contrasting with a control group with similar demographics that does not follow the same)
Technology can not and will not replace a highly-trained, knowledgeable Ayurvedic doctor or practitioner, their diagnostic methods, and the traditional teaching strategies by which this knowledge is shared.
Instead technology will be a welcome partner, allowing the use of a rich set of instructional resources, and enabling a thorough and easily accessible process for storing and retrieving information.
Healthy habits are at the core of an Ayurvedic lifestyle and the popularization and adoption of habits inspired by Ayurveda could reach a broad audience and meet their goal of maximizing their health and well-being
Benefits Waiting time in reception, lab, nursing station etc. is avoided Accurate, reliable and authentic clinical data is documented with multiple level verification. Patient Data privacy is assured effective billing system records are maintained
Increasing adoption of tablet-based electronic medical record (EMR) systems with intelligent technology, capable of adapting to each individual doctor's unique style of practice
Driven by the realization that the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda should be disseminated applying the most current trends in the field of information technology along with the latest advances in the branches of science and engineering,
