Radar Concepts

Translate the language of your patient into the language of the repertory

A patient may not provide the most accurate words to describe how he or she is feeling. It is up to the practitioner to recognize patterns, symptoms or key words during the interview process. This can sometimes make diagnosis very difficult for a homeopath. This is to be expected - we are all very different, and our language leaves room for much uncertainty around the 'concept' of the patient's problem.

RADAR's Concepts is a unique tool that helps you to translate the language of your patients into the language of the repertory. Concepts' spider-like web of information connects rubrics based on themes or concepts.

Now you can find the rubric that truly matches your patient's condition or be directed toward rubrics you never knew existed. Concepts sets RADAR apart from any other homeopathic software program that is currently available. With Concepts, finding any symptom in the repertory is as easy as a few simple mouse clicks.

The Concepts Module for RADAR stretches through the entire Synthesis Repertory, considerably simplifying the search for symptoms by using the words and expressions of the patient as a point of departure. A click of the mouse is sufficient to display all the symptoms related to a given concept or subject. In addition, you can build up your own Concepts, or add to already existing ones.

There are numerous 'books' available within the Concepts module. Each book groups symptoms by different ideas or themes. Now you can find every rubric of chronic and acute disease conditions, which in the past may have taken many hours, or even days to locate. Concepts represents a revolutionary advance in the ease and usefulness of the homeopathic repertory.

Why Use Concepts?

The endless list of symptoms and appropriate remedies become understandable if they are broken down into themes. Even the most concealed symptom can be found if one is guided to it via general symptom concepts such as 'responsibility', 'animals', or clinical expressions such as Alzheimers etc.

What I, as a teacher of Homeopathy, particularly like about the RADAR program is the way it teaches a beginner how to quickly and easily find the best rubric for the symptom.

It does this not only through cross references and synonyms but through the Concepts Tool. Just a double-click on this icon takes you to a list of related ideas and themes and you can explore these ideas until you have found the best match.

Students learn the Repertory and its language easily in this way and are very excited about how much fun it is to explore rubrics. A truly revolutionary tool!
