Integration of Western medicine and Ayurvedic

Integration of Western medicine and Ayurvedic across health care providers to result in a virtual record of health EHR and accessible

Over 400,000 practitioners worldwide practice Ayurvedic medicine making it one of the most prevalent and significant systems of medicine. As such, information and communication technologies that are transforming the practice of Western medicine through the digitization of data about patients and consultations can be expected to also transform the practice of Ayurvedic medicine. Increasingly in Western medicine, digital records are being integrated across health care providers to result in a virtual record of health events from before birth to after death known as the EHR and accessible to future providers. This same trend is not occurring in Ayurvedic medicine despite calls for this to occur. A key obstacle remains the enormous cost of linking health care provider's records. This typically amounts to lakhs of rupees of expenditure and is we are expecting to borne by governments.

The development of an EHR in India where Ayurvedic medicine is widely practiced is challenging because currently, Ayurvedic records, when they exist, are paper based. Further, the funds to meet the huge expenses associated with the establishment of an EHR are unlikely to be expended in the foreseeable future. In addition, an Ayurvedic electronic record can be most useful if it is integrated into a Western medicine EHR so that providers from both disciplines can view the entire patient's healthcare context but this only adds to the cost and complexity. Effinland IP’s Medtronic Record, a service provider will take the challenge to integrated both the western and Ayurvedic medicine practice records are planning to digitized the entire integrated medical records

The main contention advanced in this project is that Ayurvedic medicine can transition organically to be based on EHR if the demand for electronic records is created by patients and clinicians. A model for this involves the use of an application accessible on smart phones. The App uses a visual triangle that enables a Prakriti assessment to be readily entered and stored in the smart phone and shared with the patient. This first step has the potential to create demand for the Prakriti record to be expanded to include other health data, and expanded again to enable records to be shared by many health care providers. The model outlined presents an approach that facilitates the deployment of health record banks in a manner that may be affordable, sustainable.

Digitally record an Ayurvedic Prakriti assessment:

In recent years, factors including globalization and economic growth in India have driven an important modernization of Ayurvedic Medicine, characterized by increases in evidence-based research and initiatives to standardize remedies and procedures.We provide an important example of this trend with the standardization and validation of a questionnaire for the assessment of Prakriti. Prakriti represents an individual's unique personality, constitution or connection with the universe and is described on three dimensions or Dhosas; Kapha, Vata and Pitta. Ayurvedic clinicians assess a patient's Dhosa profile in order to customize diagnoses and customize treatments. Conventionally, a Dhosa profile is described using linguistic phrases such as Kapha-Vata, or Pitta-Vata Prakriti.

Representing TriDhosa on screen:

illustrates a plausible representation that includes a separate sliding data input for each of the Kapha, Vata and Pitta dimensions. This is cumbersome and deviates from core human–computer design principles elucidated by Johnson. An interface comprising three scales is minimally visual whereas a great deal of human cognition is visually driven. The three scales require the tedious entry of three pieces of data. Further, there is no correspondence between the relationship of Kapha, Vata and Pitta on screen to provide the clinician with a mental model.

Empower your patients with their health data.

The Health app makes it easier than ever for users to be engaged in their health with ways to visualize, securely store, and share their health data. Your patients can aggregate their health records from multiple institutions alongside their patient-generated data, as well as share their health data with a provider to facilitate richer conversations.

Put your patients at the center of care.

Enabling your patients to download their health records and share their health data with a provider can help them more actively participate in their health, as well help drive overall adoption of your patient portal.

Engage your patients in their own health.

When your patients have their medical information organized into one view right on their Android Phone, it can help them better understand their overall health and provide key elements of their medical history when visiting a new provider.

Enable your clinicians to view their patients’ health data within their workflow.

To facilitate more informed conversations, your patients can choose to share certain data types from the Health app with their doctor at participating organizations. Clinicians can then review patient generated health data in an easy-to-read format within the organization’s electronic health records.

Adding verifiable health records to the Health app.

If a vaccine provider or health system supports the SMART Health Cards specification, it can allow your patients to store verifiable any vaccination or test result records in the Health app. Your patients can add these records by downloading a file or scanning a QR code, so they can easily access them at any time. Verifiable if any vaccination information can also be added as a vaccination card to Wallet.

Complement your patient portal.

Connecting to the Health app has the potential to drive additional awareness and adoption of your patient portal and other services you offer because authentication through the Health app uses the same patient login credentials supported by your organization.

Our Record’s pragmatic design of the clinician dashboard aligns with our vision of breakthrough innovations in patient provider engagement. Seamless integration with our DMR makes it easy for our caregivers to view, understand and incorporate relevant information into the patient record.

Health Records on Android Phone puts our patients at the centre of their care. As a Digital Health Exemplar organisation in the DMR, we are committed to the potential for technology to empower patients to take control of their healthcare.

Patients can now collate health records from different medical providers and can show that information to their caregivers and care team’s right from their Android Phone. This effectively makes the patient a custodian of their own health data.

Keeping patients and healthcare providers connected, in a few simple steps.

We’ve worked closely with multiple DMR vendors and others in the healthcare community to make it easy for you to enable these features.

Built with industry standards.

Our Record is using the SMART on FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) standard which enables users to download their health records and share available health data with participating organizations. Downloadable data types include allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, and vitals. Data types for sharing with providers include exercise minutes, heart rate, blood pressure, lab results, immunizations, and more.

Designed to protect privacy.

With Health Records on Android Phone, your patient’s health data is encrypted in transit and at rest. Medtronic is providing a user the ability to request and download their health records utilizing a direct, encrypted connection between the users’s Android Phone and provided by the health system or clinic. When your patients share Health app data with a provider, the data is encrypted in transit and at rest and our record cannot access or view any health data stored in connection with Health app data sharing with provider.

Encrypted and secure throughout.

When health record data is transferred from a healthcare institution to the Health app through the Health Records feature, it is encrypted. When your patients share Health app data with a provider, the data is encrypted end-to-end with the healthcare organization. We does not maintain or have access to the encryption keys used to encrypt or decrypt a user’s health data.

Creates a seamless connection.

Authentication uses the user’s patient portal credentials. The EHR /DMR connection leverages which allows users to authenticate once and create an enduring connection to your HER /DMR. The Health app will periodically connect to your HER / DMR to download new health records. Sharing health data with a provider also uses this same mechanism to establish a secure connection to your EHR/DMR. New health data is shared automatically, unless the user opts to stop sharing.
