MIMS Australia

MIMS Australia has been publishing medicines information since 1963. The acronym, MIMS, was derived from the original publication which was called Monthly Index of Medical Specialties.

MIMS is the leading supplier of trusted, quality, independent medicine information to Australian healthcare professionals, known for its high level of editorial integrity and independence.

MIMS Australia offers a range of digital products that reflect current advances in information delivery; from hand held devices to online to integrating databases into clinical software applications. MIMS also continues to offer the printed reference products that have supported health care professionals for nearly 60 years.

A recent national survey of MIMS and non-MIMS healthcare clients revealed that 99.3% of respondents would recommend MIMS to a colleague.
