About Us

MIMS New Zealand

The acronym "MIMS" has a long history behind it and originated from our Australian counterpart. To cut the story short, in 1963 we had a monthly publication containing abbreviated product information: Monthly Index of Medical Specialities. Since then, MIMS has become synonymous in Australia for medical product information, and as a brand name it has evolved away from the meaning of the original derivation. MIMS was brought to New Zealand by MIMS (NZ) Ltd in late 2001 as an electronic only resource in the form of MIMS Desktop and MIMS Integrated (MedTech 32). This range of products grew over the next 2 ½ years to include MIMS Online, MIMS on PDA and a range of MIMS Integrated products. The family of products reached its current total with the publication of MIMS New Ethicals in mid 2004.
