PCKent 2
Quick Overview
 

PCKent 2 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 search criteria.

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
 
It is designed to help the homeopath in solving the 4 main problems he is daily confronted with, at the office:

  1. Quickly find the rubrics matching the observed symptoms, and display their modalities.
     
  2. Establish a repertorizing grid taking into account all the necessary criteria to valorize the symptoms, then the remedies.
     
  3. Generalize the rubrics that seem to limit the repertorizing process.
     
  4. Establish a true differential diagnosis to make a choice between several remedies.

THE EDITING MODULE
 
It allows to add, delete or modify most of PCKent's data, and in particular:

  • The repertory's rubrics. 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.
