m.Net Miniaturises MIMS Health Resource on Mobile Phones
MIMS Mobile is the latest iteration of this trusted information and decision support resource for health professionals. Updated monthly, MIMS is searchable by drug name, therapeutic class, action and indication, and by company. Patient safety is a priority in a world of increasing drug complexity; being able to check the full prescribing information and review drug to drug interactions at the point of patient care ensures the healthcare professional can make informed, safer choices
Margaret Gehrig, National Business Manager from MIMS said, “Thanks to our customers’ feedback we know of their need to access MIMS medicine information using the devices that they use/carry during their working day such as an iPhone.”
“We selected m.Net to make this vital information available on ALL internet-enabled mobile phones because of its established expertise,” Ms Gehrig said.
The challenge for m.Net was to translate the highly regarded MIMS functionality and associated user expectations onto small mobile screens.
m.Net Chief Marketing Officer, Scott Johnson, said: “The success of the project was driven by the capability of our research and usability team to work closely with MIMS to optimise the user interface design for speed of access and navigation through the rich MIMS database.”
MIMS Mobile means doctors, pharmacists, nurses and other healthcare professionals have the choice of accessing this trusted information when they are away from the usual MIMS resources e.g. at the patient’s bedside or in the patient’s home.
”We had to ensure an easy transition to the new platform so health industry professionals would feel comfortable maximising the portability of MIMS Mobile,” Scott Johnson said.
m.Net has made a solid reputation in the Australian marketplace with its consumer applications but this development cements its capabilities in the professional arena.
