  3. 3. ADVANTAGEOFCOMPUTERSOFTWARES When harnessing the clinical experience of homoeopathic experts around the world. Searching the required information in the ocean of literature.  Adding one’s clinical experience to the existing wealth of knowledge.
  5. 5. RADAR: (RAPID AID TO DRUG AIMED RESEARCH)  It is based on synthesis  It contains all the source repertories made till date.  Case can be analysed through several ways which include Vithoulkas expert system, Herscue module, Prakash Vakil module etc.  Radar 8 introduced the function of confidence levels. Physician can decide which minimum confidence level to use. The higher the minimum confidence level, the less information is displayed but the more trustworthy this information will be.  It contains Encyclopedia Homoeopathica, the largest, most reliable and structured homoeopathic reference library.

One can repertorise the case directly from materia medica.  It possess a new revolutionized graphical interface.
  7. 7. MAC REPERTORY  Designed by classical homoeopaths, graphic artists and computer programmers  Contains more than 30 repertories; 3,10,000 cross references and a wealth of synonyms, with easily understandable visual layout.  Features such as: Click on a cross – reference to leap to the exact rubric of the repertory or select a rubric and open it in multiple repertories, are very helpful.  (eg : if u have rubric “fear, dogs” in complete repertory & u want the same rubric in Kent repertory then the software will open the same rubric in Kent repertory by just one click)  Reference Works is a rich, revolutionary analysis system based on a huge library of more than a thousand volumes of materia medica: from old rare journals to the latest provings and everything in between.  You have a Repertory on the screen that looks like the book on your desk, only it is much more flexible & powerful.
  8. 8. MAC REPERTORY  Customization in all areas: one can choose to see the sub-rubrics and remedies or hide the sub- rubrics and remedies.  Flexibility :  Type any word and “instantly” see “every” rubric associated with it and scroll down to select only the rubric u want to record.  Select a remedy to see the rubrics associated with it or select a family or even two families combined, to see the associated rubrics.
  9. 9. MAC REPERTORY  The version of mind-mapping, long advocated by Louis Klein, that groups rubrics into “themes”. By creating themes in this way one have a clear, visual representation of what is more central to the case. This Approach, unique to Mac repertory, focuses your thinking and leads to more consistent results.  “The theme analysis is tuned to emphasize the generals – collecting a pool of likely remedies – and then use the peculiars to zero-in-on the precise one”. You have complete control over the analysis; emphasize small remedies, nosodes, polychrests, plants, sycotic remedies , mineral remedies and much more.
  10. 10. MAC REPERTORY  With many beautiful graphs, mac repertory excels at presenting the best remedies for a case.  Mac Repertory turns repertories into “valuable tools for research.” For example: With a couple of clicks one can discover all the rubrics of anxiety having the remedy medorrhinum, all the rubrics of anxiety having remedies medorrhinum and arsenic or all the rubrics of anxiety having the remedy medorrhinum but not arsenic.
