Repertorisation is a bridge between the analysing the case and matching the remedy picture in the materia medica. The need of a repertory arose for the quick and easy access to the voluminous data of symptoms in materia medica. There are various repertories formed based on certain philosophy by its author.
During Hahnemann’s time the homeopathic data was limited to print form. Over the period of time, the evidence of recorded materia medica increased from 300 to more than 3000 remedies and thousands of symptoms. Human brain cannot assimilate such vast data and to avoid missing important rubrics and remedies, there is the need of good homeopathic software.
