Which MIMS?

Choosing the right version of MIMS for your pharmacy can be difficult.  Here is a guide.


eMIMS continues to be a complete and trusted guide to product information, consumer medicine information and product images for all registered medicines in Australia.mims-tagline

The new eMIMSCloud and eMIMSDesktop have been developed specially to meet the needs of busy pharmacists for faster access to a growing body of information.

eMIMS is recommended by the Pharmacy Board of Australia as a reference for pharmacists during the dispensing, clinical assessment, reviewing and counselling process, for drug interactions and as an evidence-based reference work on complementary and alternate medicines.

Choosing the right eMIMS will put current medicines information, clinical tools and patient care at your fingertips.

  • Simple functionality that crosses platforms– because you need to think about the content, not how to find it
  • The choice of desktop or internet access to suit the way you work
  • Tools and calculators that help you make timely decisions with evidence based parameters
  • More Patient Care content that fits the needs of your working day
  • Choose single user or corporate pricing to suit the way your business work

Updated seamlessly each month, NEW eMIMS has a comprehensive suite of medicines information and clinical tools you can use all day every day. Unlike other drug information programs the NEW eMIMS looks and feels identical across two delivery formats:



  • Download once from DVD or internet and stored on your computer hard drive
  • Available from December 2013
  • Order code: EMIMSD

Add the unique IMgateway’s, evidence based Drug/Herb and Food Interactions model

The IMgateway Drug/ Herb and food interaction database has been developed by Sydney University and is ideal for pharmacists and students.

  • The interaction record contains a description of the interaction, what could be expected if there is an interaction, severity of the interaction, strength of the supporting evidence and precautions needed. This helps the healthcare professional and  patient to avoid adverse events.
  • The IMgateway database within both the eMIMS Cloud and the eMIMS Desktop will enable you to retrieve evidence-based information on clinically-significant drug and herb and/or food interactions. It facilitates a search of a complementary medicine against a prescription medicine (or vice-versa), to quickly obtain a recommendation on whether the combination should be avoided, requires caution or indeed may improve the outcome.
