This lecture explores how current science, biostatistics in particular, can be used to investigate and evaluate Hahnemann’s concept of genus epidemicus. Homeopaths used to take case notes on paper. With the digitalization of our profession, it has become the norm to use computers for data storage. The Clificol project is a worldwide cloud-database of clinical cases, dedicated to the investigation of homeopathic prescribing patterns. The project was developed after long and fruitful conversations between homeopaths and biostatisticians. Careful attention was paid to the manner in which data is entered, as this defines what can be searched. Clificol is a tool that will eventually shed new light on the old concept of genus epidemicus.
