AyushEHR- A game-changing software solution for the Ayurveda and Yoga resorts.

With the changing times and the heaps of work that needed for inter-departmental coordination, managing any industry is getting difficult. The need to collect, manage and interpret data from various business activities could only be done using pen and paper or through spreadsheet shared through google drive. But such methods have serious limitations that reduces efficiency and transparency of information.

What is ERP?

ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning is a business management software that organises, assembles and operates data from various business platforms and prevents unnecessary delays in processing information and mistakes. What started off as a tool for organising and scheduling of materials by the manufacturers initially didn’t cover all the aspects of the requirement in a company or firm. With the development and evolution of technology, ERPs have evolved into a unified and integrated approach for automating core business processes using a common database management system.

ERP provides many benefits to companies’ such as keeping track of the manufacturing, purchasing, sales and accounting and is a boon to the company management and senior stakeholders. But conventional ERPs, designed around manufacturing and services businesses, couldn’t cater much to the needs of the Healthcare Industry. Healthcare business has many special requirements such as maintaining updated patient information their medical history, medicine prescriptions etc. and so conventional ERPs fail to work properly. However Electronic Health Records(EHR) systems have been designed to address the specific needs of Healthcare industry.

EHR and its increasing use in the Healthcare Industry

EHR or Electronic Health Record is a digital platform used by the Medical Industry to manage medical and treatment history of the patients’ digitally and eliminate the use of pen and paper. What makes EHR different from ERP is its focus on the management of health information of individual patients by authorised healthcare providers. It may be shared with other providers across one or more medical institutions for the convenience of the patient and the medical practitioners and with laboratories, pharmacies, specialists or school and workplace clinics. Since the clinical record has been mandated as an belonging to the individual and his legal right, by the Indian EHR standards, EHR becomes an essential tool that supports the Healthcare industry to maintain compliance.

Philosophy of AyushEHR

With the increasing adoption of the philosophy of preventive healthcare using holistic wellness practices such as Ayurveda & Yoga, people all around the world are choosing to rely on the 5000-year-old natural healing process than popping pills to combat sickness and illness. Since the holistic approach of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy is quite different from the conventional field of medicine and treatment, such practitioners need to know the lifelong information about their patient’s medical background before initiating any treatment. They need to make tailored treatment for each of their patrons depending on their personal health history. AyushEHR has been designed with this in mind and is a software that allows complete accuracy and transparency in managing such personal health information. With the Resorts taking a lead in adopting technology for this traditional healthcare sector, many Ayurveda & Yoga Resorts already rely heavily on such EHR solutions to provide a personalized care for their guests.

Philosophy behind the creation of AyushEHR is to encourage healthy living. The cloud-based software is ready to use in personalized care management and is designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of business. It is a software package that enables healthy living, lifestyle and care. AyushEHR is the solution that makes loose ends meet, both from the doctor’s and the patient’s side.

Ayurveda and Modern Healthcare – Part 3: Opportunity to Reinvent & Rejuvenate to recapture lost ground

Despite being one of the oldest and most credible medical practices in India, Ayurveda has resonance only among a limited percentage of population in the country. The comprehensive umbrella of AYUSH, which comprises of streams of treatment practices such as Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and more are known for their effectiveness. However, the patronage of such Indic practices have been very feeble when compared to the Western practices like Allopathy.

An NSSO survey as recent as in the year 2015 reveals that over 90% of the population in both the rural and urban settlements in India preferred allopathy for diagnosis and treatment. The percentage of population that resorted to AYUSH was less than 7% in both the demographics. Though the trend would now be slightly better with the government pushing AYUSH adoption through its educational programs, institutes, wellness centres and regulations, the numbers would be just slightly higher.

The onset of Disruptive Technology

One of the major reasons allopathy has gained a very strong foothold across the globe is because of its adaptability. It has been evolutionary in its journey, adopting modern technologies and trends as they arrived. In recent times, allopathy was quick to adopt the cloud-based tech revolution – Electronic Health Records(EHR) – for its practice and wellness deliverance. With individuals’ medical data stored on the clouds, this ensured people from any part of the world received standardized treatment and diagnosis. Since the data is stored on the cloud, it allowed doctors and medical practitioners to retrieve the data and provide better and personalized healthcare services to patients.

Failure to catch up with technology

The reason for allopathy gaining traction is also the reason why Ayurveda couldn’t evolve as a popular healthcare practice. There are several factors Ayurveda can consider and work on to make it mainstream once again. Today, technology has evolved to an extent that virtual bots are able to detect the most minute presence of ailments in the human body that veteran doctors couldn’t spot. Since healthcare is an evidence-based service, we have diverse technologies today that work on gathering evidence through data.

With the record of patients’, doctors are now able to not just describe and prescribe medications and ailments but predict as well. The government has also come up with regulatory bodies, national policies and standards to benchmark the adoption of technology in healthcare and pave way for regularized, cost-effective and precise treatments.

Opportunity to Reinvent and Rejuvenate

Every new technology or concept has multiple aspects of adoption and Ayurveda has to improve technology adoption in its practices to gain more patronage. Ayurveda practitioners should work on three aspects of development to make the practices mainstream –

  • Build a supportive and sustainable ecosystem
  • Bring more transparency and record keeping
  • Understand and implement standards

Building an ecosystem means that the practitioners should look for more specific ways to adopt and leverage today’s technology. The use of EHR and clinical management systems in their resorts, retreats, clinics and hospitals is an ideal way to make the best out of tech and establish credibility among people and patients. Once the measures to generate, store, retrieve and share data are in place, the practitioners should focus on streamlining healthcare practices.

Patients gain trust on science when they are informed about the procedures and concept behind it. Ayurveda practitioners should aim to achieve the same through the use of EHR. A transparent treatment agenda will not just build trust but spread patronage as well. This treatment practice will further reflect on the outcomes of the practices in the fact that patients will be able to follow medications, therapies or remedies more judiciously.

With the onset of AyushEHR from HealtheLife, there cannot be a better time to kick start the evolutionary process for Ayurveda. Our cloud-based solution tackles any shortcoming your clinic or retreat is likely to face in terms of management and wellness deliverance. With the opportunity to reinvent and rejuvenate Ayurveda ripe, you can get in touch with us to leverage disruptive technology to grow fast.

How personalizing their experience can improve the quality of care and create guest loyalty at your Ayurveda resort.

Ayurveda Resorts are fast emerging as the new and improved treatment for modern ailments. By offering comfort and pleasure that allow the guests to take a break from their daily grind and the troubles that come with it – the relaxing ambience along with the specialized Ayurveda treatments – provides the necessary, much needed respite. Preventive nature of treatments provided by resorts also help avoid visits to hospitals, by taking the necessary precautions early. The promotion schemes for AYUSH implemented in 2014 by the government of India has also boosted the development and popularization of Ayurveda treatment.

By personalizing the services provided and experience for the guests, the resorts have the following benefits:

  • Treatment solutions to lifestyle based ailments: Studies have shown that rejuvenating oneself is necessary from time to time and a personalized experience with exclusive Ayurveda treatment plans and food preparations made specifically for the guest can help them make this experience special. This contributes greatly in improving the quality of care provided and also ensures that it is effective and appreciated by the guest
  • Improved variety of care: By knowing what each guest would prefer, resorts can prepare in advance with all that is necessary to provide the guest a variety of care even before the guest checks-in into the resort
  • Exclusive diet and lifestyle patterns: If necessary attention is paid to every patient’s preferences such as his/her favorite bedsheets colour, amount of salt in food or allergies, the guests would be surprised at your ability to pay attention to slightest detail
  • Exclusive exercise plans: Each body is different and when different exercise regime is provided to the guest, personal attention can paid to avoid injuries and make their stay even pleasurable
  • Viable plans for sustenance of the given treatment: One of the major downfalls of Ayurveda resorts is often considered to be the short term benefits of the programs. They are perceived to not provide sufficient post treatment guest management. Having given a plan to the guest for continuing, the benefit reaped during the stay can be sustained for a longer duration thus earning the goodwill of the guest
  • Excellent follow up and health record management: During the follow-up session with the guest, instead of expecting the guest to narrate the treatments undergone or going through your own resort file, having an online tool to manage their health record would help the physician in prescribing sessions that would genuinely benefit the guest.

Tools like AyushEHR help resorts execute an excellent personalized care plan. By implementing Ayush EHR in your resort:

  • There is an efficient way to improve transparency in Ayurveda treatment procedures
  • Being a cloud based software, it help with post treatment follow ups with any physician
  • Using electronic health records (EHR) brings much needed credibility to the treatment and decreases reliance on conveying information by word of mouth
  • Standards based EHR solution for delivery, documentation and validation of AYUSH services are provided
  • Health information is inter-operable, individual-centric and records all treatment details adding more scope to the Ayurveda treatment methods

These qualities make it an essential Electronic Health Management Tool for any Ayurveda Resort. The benefits are many and undeniable. It would promote customer loyalty and help to eliminate the many misconceptions associated with Ayurveda.

The improvement in health care management is immediately apparent to the guest as it helps provide a treatment plan that is more customized to their exclusive needs based on the records available in the EHR software. With all of these benefits it is a must have for an Ayurveda resort in today’s day and age.

A panel of eminent experts screened all the applicants and selected top 500 for the multi-city pitch that happened between the 6th to the 10th of August in many cities across the state.  From the startups who pitched, top 250 have been selected for the final pitch scheduled for the 30th at Bangalore.

With the learnings from last year and the maturity that we have gained over the last 2 years, we intend to do all that it takes to get to the top 100 winners this year. With the progress that we have made so far, we feel that we are now in a position to make best use of the financial grant and mentoring support that the Elevate100 winners would be entitled to.

New Internal Notes & Observations module in AyushEHR R 1.3.4

We are excited to announce the wider availability of Internal notes/observations module in our latest 1.3.4 release of AyushEHR. This module is designed on the lines of a social media wall and is designed to be used as an unstructured summary of the customers. This module is purely for the internal use of the organization and is not part of the EHR of the customer.

During guest interaction from enquiry to episode completion, staff are required to make notes, observations, requests and feedbacks about a customer at different times. These may be received by email, on paper, verbally and also inferred by the staff as they work with the customer. Such details, which are very important during the care process, often remain in separate silos and are often not available at the required time.

Notes/observations module is designed to aggregate, tag(#tags and userTags) and make available contextually in a structured way to help users provide better care. Users are able to view, sort and filter the notes/observations easily so that appropriate actions can be taken at the right time.

With this, AyushEHR brings another very useful tool for the Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy care community. We believe that by properly leveraging this module, the practitioners should be able to take the healthcare experience that they provide a few notches up the ladder.

For more details, please review the full AyushEHR capability or contact us to get a free demo account. You may also read more about AyushEHR.
