5. ATMA HOMOEOPATHY SOFTWARE :
AtamA is an entry level homeopathy software from ‘Anahata Software’. It is a standard repertorisation software with limited features. Some of these features are:
Basic repertorisation using Kent’s abridged repertory with about 10,000 symptoms.
The numerical and totality based results are given with the facility to weigh the symptoms.
The materia medica given for reference is Boericke’s abridged materia medica with 100 medicines.
Hahnemann’s Organon of Medicine is provided as a reference book for philosophy.
AtamA leaves a lots to be desired even as an entry level software. With so many cheap entry level softwares available with lot’s of features, using abridged versions of books is not a good idea. Even Kent’s repertorie’s 6th edition had more than 60,000 rubrics. And now a days when people are going in for new repertories like Synthesis, Combined, Complete, and Murphy’s Repertory with many more rubrics, the abridged version of Kent becomes a limitation.
The same goes for Boericke’s materia medica. The full version has more than 700 medicines and even these do not cover all the new remedies in vogue. So a software with 100 medicines to refer may be useful for students but not for a practicing homeopath.
