HRep, HQR, and HQz are Android apps useful to the student and practitioner of homoeopathy. There are demo videos for the Apps on the Google Play Store, along with screenshots to help you understand and use them.

HRep (Homeopathic Repertory) is based on Kent's Repertory, with additions of some more drugs and rubrics from reliable sources such as Boericke, Boger, Phatak etc.

It has three sections:

  1. Repertorization
  2. Repertory Search
  3. Materia Medica

HRep provides standard repertorization (Classic) as well as repertorization using some unique rules (Expert). Used in conjunction with PhaseRep on this website, it will help in more accurate prescribing. Drugs are marked as "keynotes" in several rubrics to indicate their unique sphere of action. These keynotes are also used to modify the results of the repertorization.

An attempt has been made to indicate the Therapeutic indications for a drug through the use of a unique tag "trp". Another tag "frq" indicates symptoms commonly seen in patients and present in the Materia Medica. These special keywords may help facilitate searching as well confirming a remedy.

Video help files as well as the Help page on this website demonstrate how to use HRep, while showing the features present.

HQR (Homeopathic Quick Reference) is a rapid reference for homoeopaths consisting of seven sections:

MedInfo is the same information that you find on this website, and Keynotes is the text used in the Quiz here.

The information in Pocket MM is different from the Materia Medica section on this website, and Pocket Rep is not the same as the repertory used in PhaseRep. HQR and this website are complementary - each providing useful information, with some overlap.

Within HQR, you will find that the Pocket MM works like a mini repertory, and the Pocket Rep works as a mini materia medica. Once again, the content in the Pocket MM and Pocket Rep are not the same, and used together, they "complete", or complement each other. When you further study the keynotes, you will find that the main features of at least the polychrests are well covered.

However, as must be evident from the name, these are just pocket reminders, not reference sources. Both the materia medica and the repertory have some characteristic symptoms / rubrics and are not a complete listing. So if you feel some important rubrics are missing, don't be surprised. They are. The choice of rubrics is an individual matter, and no doubt one might feel other rubrics should have been included.

Case Taking is a section to help the novice while taking the case. It serves as a reminder for experienced homeopaths to ensure, after the case taking process, that they have not omitted important questions.

Finally, there is a link on HQR to this website, to allow rapid access to PhaseRep etc.

HQz app iconAndroid app on Google Play

HQz (Homoeopathy Quiz) is a quiz program based on Keynotes from Classic Materia Medicas such as Kent and Boger. It gives you multiple choice answers for a keynote, then indicates the correct one after you have answered. Once you complete the questions, it displays any errors you might have made, along with the correct answers. This helps you study and revise. Then you can attempt a re-quiz of just the errors to ensure you have learned the keynotes. The number of questions asked per session can be modified in the settings. Daily study of the Keynotes using HQz should result in significant improvements in both Prescribing as well as Case-taking.
