1. What is CLIFICOL
CLIFICOL, the Clinical File Collection, is an International Homeopathic Data Bank able to store millions of clinical cases collected in different languages, sent by homeopaths working with different methodologies.
Uploaded cases may contain: text, repertorizations and specific case information such as pathology, remedy, sex, language, etc.
2. Why CLIFICOL
CLIFICOL gives the homeopathic community the possibility of sharing and collecting case experiences in order to compare different methodological approaches.
In this way the homeopathic community has at its disposal relevant Evidence-Based clinical information for homeopathic teaching, research and recognition.
3. Uploading cases
The CLIFICOL database can be accessed through:
· A free Website interface is being developed so that cases can be submitted without using WinCHIP Opus
· WinCHIP Opus software: the users have a one button function to upload cases and search cases
Clinical cases are encrypted and transmitted anonymously from the homeopaths consulting room to the central database via the SSL-protocol.
5. Researching cases
You can do a simple search for cases of a certain remedy or pathology.
You can also do more advanced searches based on a set of criteria (e.g.: according to different methods of prescriptions, age, sex, family history, etc.)
Once you have identified the cases you are interested in, you can download the entire case in a PDF format.
6. Free of charge
You can upload and search cases free of charge.
7. Interaction with Materia Medica and Repertory
CLIFICOL is an independent project, but will also be seamlessly integrated into RadarOpus. As such cured cases will be integrated into the Materia Medica and the Repertory. Different links between these types of information will be implemented in RadarOpus.
8. Owner of the Clinical data
The Scientific Committee of CLIFICOL recognizes the homeopathic community as owner of every clinical case recorded. The Scientific Committee are trustees of this data.
The Scientific Committee will manage this legacy and ensure the rights of homeopaths and their patients. The Committee represents the promoters of this project.
