MIMS subscribers encouraged to transition to Gateway
Subscribers to MIMS Integrated are being encouraged to transfer to the new MIMS Gateway launched by MIMS NZ last month.
MIMS Gateway has superseded MIMS Online for hospital-based clinicians and brings together all essential resources under the one platform, including the NZ Formulary.
It is also available to MIMS Integrated general practice and pharmacy subscribers free of charge.
MIMS describes MIMS Gateway as an intelligent workflow-oriented resources that the organisation has been developing over the past two years.
It brings together multiple interfaces for varying resources under the one platform to allow for ease of searching and discovering related information from a variety of sources.
According to MIMS, research with hospital staff revealed that a paucity of information was not an issue – it was the ability to find all relevant resources to support clinical decision making.
“MIMS Gateway uses the familiar MIMS platform as its foundation and builds upon this by including content from complementary resources such as the NZ Formulary and other national resources,” a MIMS spokesperson said.
“The site also contains information useful to counsel patients and clients such as patient information leaflets and everybody patient information sheets.”
The spokesperson said a key value of MIMS Gateway is the ability to associate medicine concepts with locally developed content so that it can be easily found and used by staff.
“Not only does this save time but it also promotes usage of the resources which allows clinicians and users to be better informed of local policies and guidelines as well as safety alerts.”
MIMS Gateway is available to trial prior to going live.
