    <p>Dileep,</p>
    <p>for the philosophical question, CKM and openEHR are objectively
      agnostic about allopathy and other kinds of medical approaches;
      what it is not agnostic about is a general scientific method
      approach, sometimes known as a hypothetico-deductive approach. Big
      words, but all they mean is that openEHR does predispose the
      content models to at least some sort of observation / diagnostic /
      intervention cycle. From my limited knowledge of Ayurveda, I don't
      think there are incompatabilities - the theoretical methods are
      just different, i.e. what kind of observations, how diagnosis is
      made and so on are different.</p>
    <p>The one thing that is needed for things like Ayurvedic archetypes
      to co-exist with mainstream western medicine ones is that naming
      is done carefully so that no basic terms are confused. For
      example, there is an archetype known as 'problem/diagnosis'. The
      unwritten assumption is that this is to do with western medicine.
      Whether it is re-usable for Ayrvedic healing I don't know, but
      let's assume it isn't. So you will want to create a
      problem/diagnosis archetype(s) for Ayurveda, and to avoid name
      clashes, it will need an id like ayurvedic_problem_diagnosis or
      similar. The same goes for any other potentially clashing content
      areas.</p>
    <p>It might seem unfair that western medicine is the default concept
      space, just as English language is the default in archetype ids
      (not elsewhere though), but in the end they are all just ids. As
      long as we know what they mean, everyone will be happy.</p>
    <p>The same arguments apply to naturopathy and so on.</p>

            <div>Hi,
              <div><br>
              </div>
              <div>We are working on a OpenEHR based EHR solution for
                Ayurveda and Yoga practices. As the fundamental tenets
                of Ayurveda are different from the allopathy, we are in
                the process of creating a different set of archetypes as
                per their practice requirements. We would like to make
                them available to anybody else who may find them useful.</div>
              <div><br>
              </div>
              <div>What is the best way to do this? Is it appropriate to
                add them to the OpenEHR CKM? or is that only for
                Allopathy specific archetypes? What should be the
                general framewok as like us others may be trying to
                adapt OpenEHR RM to other such practices around the
                world?</div>
