Improved Analysis management, improved searching, and a new integrated Dictionary.
- Download AtamA for all platforms (31 MB)
AtamA is a full-featured Homeopathy application geared towards the lay person and priced to be affordable. A brief description of features is provided here; see the AtamA Help file for a complete description of AtamA's capabilities or download the demo version to see for yourself.
The primary sources of information used in AtamA are:
- James T. Kent's Repertory of the Homeopathic Materia Medica (sixth edition). Included rubrics have at least one high weight (bold) instance of one of the 100 remedies chosen for the Materia Medica.
- William Boericke's Pocket Manual of Homeopathic Materia Medica (ninth edition). AtamA has the complete text for 100 common remedies.
- Samuel Hahnemann's Organon of Medicine (sixth edition). The standard translation by R.E. Dudgeon and William Boericke is included, with a special layout that helps the user read footnotes concurrently.
AtamA manages case information in the form of analysis items. The items are organized by individual, so a case history is built up over time. On the Analysis tab you can:
- Sort remedies by "number" (total number of symptoms associated with a remedy) or "totality" (accumulated weight for all symptoms).
- Manage analysis items in AtamA, not the computer's file system. This is a new feature added in response to user feedback about the difficulty of managing analysis computer files; now AtamA manages them for you automatically.
- Print an analysis if you need to keep paper records.
The Search feature helps a user find symptoms in the Repertory using keywords that are contained in rubric descriptions. Searching in AtamA is similar to searching on the internet. On the Search tab you can:
- Match words exactly or using synonyms. AtamA includes a large number of synonyms for common and uncommon words.
- Narrow results by showing only those rubrics associated with a particular remedy.
- Jump instantly to the Repertory or Materia Medica to explore a rubric's context or examine a remedy's details.
The newest version of AtamA includes an integrated
dictionary. Because AtamA uses Kent's Repertory,
there are some archaic medical terms. We chose to keep Kent's verbiage for
students studying the original. You can easily look up the
definition of a word in a rubric using the "Define" context menu.
10,000+ rubrics in 36 chapters are organized in a convenient and intuitive tree view, making it easy to browse and find symptoms. On the Repertory tab you can:
- View the remedies for each rubric, sorted by weight.
- Add symptoms to an analysis directly from the Repertory.
- Jump instantly to the Materia Medica to examine a particular remedy's details.
Your hunt for the simillimum will end with close inspection of a few remedies. AtamA presents all the information related to a remedy in one place. On the Medica tab you can:
- View all the rubrics associated with a remedy using AtamA's "reverse repertory".
- Jump to related remedies by following hyperlinks in Boericke's text.
- Jump instantly to the Repertory to explore a rubric's context.
AtamA contains many documents related to Homeopathy including Hahnemann's Organon of Medicine and essays by Kent such as Use of the Repertory and How to Study the Repertory. A special footnote pane makes it easier to read the extensively noted Organon.
AtamA has an extensive help system. It explains features and includes a step-by-step tutorial with movies that teach you how to use the software.
