Remote Health Center/ Pharmacy
Using the Electronic Medical Record, regular consultations will be arranged with Doctors in bigger cities. So in remote areas, a nurse/caregiver can examine the patient and take the symptoms, input them into computer software. A partner doctor sitting in a big city like Kolkata can go through the recorded symptoms of the patient and prescribe the medications and investigation. It can also provide treatment for routine problems.
Partner Pathological Lab
After getting the online prescription, The nurse/caregiver in the remote area can explain this to the patient, provide medicine from a local pharmacy, arrange an investigation in the local pathological Center. The partner lab completes the tests and inputs the result into the software. Then the investigation results from the pathology lab reach directly to the doctor after the test through computer software. And then the doctor can decide the next step like procedures or surgeries after going through those investigation reports.
Partner Govt Hospital
When a patient is diagnosed properly for any procedure or surgery, and if there is no emergency, then the surgery can be planned in a partner govt hospital for operation theatre and other facilities, And the surgeon can come to the remote areas only to do the surgeries. Else the patient can be suggested to the big cities if surgery is critical. This will save the travel costs or time of the patient before visiting big cities for treatment.
Preventive Health Center
A weekly preventive health checkup can be arranged for the local people. Women after getting pregnant need constant observations, vaccinations, suggestions to avoid malnutrition/ complications, etc. Computer systems can provide us alerts to follow up with these women if our social workers create the database by visiting remote areas.

Life in Ayurveda is conceived as the union of body, senses, mind and soul. The living man is a conglomeration of three humours (Vata, Pitta &Kapha), seven basic tissues (Rasa, Rakta, Mansa, Meda, Asthi, Majja & Shukra) and the waste products of the body i.e. mala, mutra and sweda. Thus the total body matrix comprises the humours, the tissues and the waste products of the body. The growth and decay of this body matrix and its constituents revolve around food which gets processed into humours, tissues and wastes. Ingestion, digestion, absorption, assimilation and metabolism of food have an interplay in health and disease which are significantly affected by psychological mechanisms as well as by bio- fire (Agni).

The system presumes that the human body is a harmonious whole of 5 great elements that create nature, and diseases occur when this internal harmony is lost due to toxins accumulated in the body as a consequence of an individual’s faulty lifestyle.
