is a homeopathic decision support software based on
the use of Kent's repertory.
It works on any computer running
Windows XP or later. It also works on Mac systems
equipped with a Windows emulator (BootCamp, VMWare, Parallel Desktop...).
PCKent 2 is the result of 20 years of successful
and interactive development.
Its clear and intuitive interface is very easy to
use. At every moment it allows to get and display
the most relevant information according to your
PCKent 2 consists in two core modules:
the first one helps you to analyze a clinical case, while the second one allows you
to modify any data (repertory's rubrics, remedies...).
THE DECISION SUPPORT MODULE
designed to help the homeopath in solving the 4 main problems he is daily confronted
with, at the office:
Quickly find the rubrics matching the observed symptoms,
and display their modalities.
- Establish a repertorizing grid
taking into account all the necessary criteria to valorize the symptoms,
then the remedies.
- Generalize the rubrics
that seem to limit the repertorizing process.
- Establish a true differential
diagnosis to make a choice between several remedies.
It allows to add, delete or modify
most of PCKent's data, and in particular:
You can edit the label, the linked rubrics lists, the remedies list...
- The dictionnary.
Each word can be divided into many homographs (same spelling but
different meanings), and can be linked to other words of more or less
close meaning (synonyms...).
- The remedies.
Each of them can be associated to many properties (botanical families,
periodic table of elements, Enneagram...), and you can create and manage
as many properties as you need.
A free text area allow you to type your own comment, or to paste data
from your web browser.
- The authors.
Every change made to the directory is associated with one or more
authors. You can create and manage as many authors as you want. That way,
you can create your own working group and track changes made by everyone
in the repertory...
- The synoptic plans. They
help to bring out the structure of each repertory's section, and let you assign a
general value to rubrics.
