From the Paper:

"The natural health practitioner's practice is quite different from that of medical doctors in that much of the homeopathy is based upon the patient's response to questions posed by the practitioner. Consultations require a one-hour period of time limiting the number of patients the practitioner is able to see in a day. Another means of conducting consultations would prove to be invaluable in terms of healthcare delivery to the patient base of this clinic. This system would furthermore allow quicker feedback and results to be filtered to the patients and would end the incessant waiting until their next appointment to receive results, feedback or instructions for their healthcare needs."
