 The important aim of computer is
  to provide the demanded result
  after supplying essential data to
  the system.
 The    computer    consists    of
  Hardwares and software. The
  hardware includes
    Visual display unit or monitor – it‟s
     function is to screen up the data
     supplied to it.
   Key board – by which we can talk with
    the computer. It is useful to send the
    necessary message to the computer. It
    contains Keys, which are of two types
     Functionalkeys
     Standard type writer keys.

   CPU – Central processing unit – It is the
    heart of the computer where all data is
    processed and analysed. It possesses
    RANDOM      ASSES              MEMORY whose
    function is to have a stock of
    information. If the information is more
    it requires separate storehouse for
    preserving information, which is called
       Others - Printer, scanner, multimedia
        kit, Web Camera etc.
   All these parts are unitedly names as
    “HARDWARE”. Another part of the
    apparatus, which is more important,
    is    named      as     „APPLICATION
    SOFTWARE.” It helps to direct the
    hardware and its parts to work out
    the data.

 For getting Similimum by using
  repertories many people started
  searching for quick technique.
 Several people developed cards
  but because of limitations, card
  technique was remained behind.
 Many         people        almost
  simultaneously             started
  developing     computer     based
  Repertories.   5
 In  or after 1979 computerized
  programmes like Le Repertoire
  de kent, Melanie and „LAMINA‟
  were introduced.
 Lamina homoeopathic repertory
  analysis system was developed in
  Australia and it was covering
  14700 and plus symptoms.
 This work was based on Kent‟s
 It  is wrong to judge that
  computers will give us the
  answer with minimal efforts.
 Computers are merely a tool
  to aid our thinking and help us
  with ideas.
 Homoeopathy will always be
  an human art despite its solid
  scientific foundations.
 Computer   can be very useful to
  new Homoeopaths with limited
  knowledge of Polychrest and also
  guides old Homoeopaths to
  consider smaller remedies.
 Now with the advent of handy
  laptops and power books, it is
  easy    to   use   them    during
  interview with more interactions
  and side by side analysis.
 Since  the late 1980 number of
  computer     programme      have
  became available.
 Out   of these Homoeopathic
  Program's     MAC     Repertory,
  RADAR,       Hompath,      CARA,
  Polychrest,        homoeopathic
  Assistant,           Repertorium
  Homoepathicum digital 1, 2 HRS
  – Homoeopathic Repertorization
  system etc. gained prominence.

   We can save a lot of time and concentrate
    only on the patient and art of
    homoeopathy leaving the routine job on
    the program.
   Process is more enjoyable & more
    exciting because it allows playing with
    the    information              put in making
    eliminations, looking at what changes
    occur when you add or remove
   It saves time of writing out all the rubrics
    and prints it all out neatly.
 It reduces the manual work.
 Real    advantage of a computer
  repertory will be to search through
  the Materia Medica for symptoms not
  found in the repertory. This process
  is only possible because of computer.
 Besides     the    pure    work    of
  repertorization, the computer is an
  excellent tool to collect information
  and have it ready to display in
  therapy or teaching.
 It helps to create data banks of
  cured cases and to be in contact via
  Homoeo net with Homoeopaths all
  over the world.
 Different programs have different
  contents and number of book that
  help to ready references.
 Creates impression on patient.

 Computer     won‟t accept slightest
  typing error, it is wrong to judge that
  computers will give the answer with
  minimal efforts.
 It is not the solution or computer
  does not solve your problems and
  find the indicated remedy when your
  perceiving of the case is wrong.
 Very costly
 Human factor is secondary important
  so one cannot improve the power of
  logical thinking.
 One can not always depends upon
 For proper case taking and selection
  of symptoms computer does not
  help, it is the job of physician at last.

    the     patient‟s    tongue,     patient‟s
    preferences for any particular colour and
    the phases of the moon.
   So it helps to find the right remedy and
    also to confirm a given remedy.
   To differentiate between two closely
    related remedies, the the live sounds
    sample of cough integrated into VACS
    helps the Homoeopaths in comparing and
    confirming a remedy.
   Various pictures of the tongue have been
    added into this programme so that you
    can easily judge the most prominent
    remedy after matching it with the tongue
    of the patient.

  seeing various disease photographs
  and even listen to the sound clips of
  a number of diseases like cough and
  respiratory sounds of the patient.

  famous homoeopaths on different
  remedies with picture clips.
