Tool for doctors

A computer tool makes a doc's job easier

Here is a new homemade computer software for medicos. Developed by Anil Vij, a Delhi-based doctor, Prescription Pad Ver-2, enables doctors to write prescriptions, file reports and search for medical records electronically.

It has a complete drug database with relation to Indian Pharmacopoeia and a feature to check drug reactions and safety parameters for every brand that a doctor prescribes for the patient.

"The software has complete diagnostic information of about 1,500 diseases along with their related investigations and differential diagnosis so that a clinician has complete information at his desktop," says Dr. Vij.
