1 Introduction

The aim of PrAna is to aggregate and normalize prescription data to calculate total prescribed quantity of different APIs, using open source statistical software [1]. The name is an acronym for Prescription Analysis

Apart, from the calculation of the total prescribed quantity of an API or a group of APIs, specified to a postcode or region, We have also developed, an open interactive web-based tool, PrAnaViz with the processed dataset for the period 2015 to 2018.

PrAnaViz facilitates users to visualise, explore and report different spatiotemporal and long-term prescription trends for wider use.
