Developed by Arya Vaidya Pharmacy (AVP), it is also the first online indexing system for Ayurveda researchers
This is the first online indexing system for Ayurveda researchers,” AVP Research Foundation Director Dr Ram Manohar said.
The initiative was carried out with a funding of Rs 10 lakh from Central Council for Research in Ayurveda and Siddha (CCRAS).
The search tool provides access to published results on ayurvedic ingredients and treatment among others. It is not just a compendium of herbal plants but comprises of Ayutexts which are Ayurveda articles created on similar lines that of the international journal PubMed.
There are original graphical texts depicted of Sushruta Samhita, Ashtanga Hrdayam, Charaka Samhita and Sarangadhara Samhita. Users can access the commentaries for various verses and texts given in the books.
Another offering by AVP is the Clinical Documentation System which can be used by hospitals to record their ongoing clinical practice. It is a single source of practical based clinical outcomes available free of cost that can be used by practising Ayurvedic physicians.
Since ayurvedic physicians document diagnosis and treatment in a limited format, not amenable to collation and analysis, AVP provides a standard format to authenticate each patients diagnosis and treatment besides update the same during each visits of the patient.
The tool also provides necessary flexibilities including side effects seen during the treatment. It also enables collation and analysis of the data under different pre-decided headings.
