Update MIMS

MIMS, the Monthly Index of Medical Specialities, is fully integrated into Zedmed, and each month, a new MIMS file is available. This guide explains how to perform the MIMS update, based on the version of Zedmed your practice is using.

MIMS update for Zedmed version 33 and above

Zedmed will display a notification in Clinical when there is a new MIMS update available. Admin users can run the update at any time from any workstation for the whole practice. 

Updating MIMS will have no impact on Zedmed Clinical and all users can continue to use Zedmed.

To run the MIMS update:

  1. Select the yellow notification link - or - from the Zedmed Clinical menu, select Tools> Update MIMS.
    The Update MIMs screen will open.
  2. Select Update MIMS.
  3. Enter your MIMS password into the field provided.
    This is the password you get with your MIMS subscription.
    The update will run and display its progress.
  4. Select the x in the corner of the Update MIMS screen to close it when the update is at 100%.

MIMS update for Zedmed versions below v33

For these versions of Zedmed, the MIMS file is taken from the Client Portal. We recommend doing this out of hours because this process will log all users out of Zedmed Clinical.

To update MIMS:

  1. Log into the Zedmed database server.
  2. Open a web browser.
  3. Go to www.zedmed.com.au.
  4. Select the Login button.
  5. Sign in to the Client Login portal with your Username and Password.
    If you don't have an account, you can select Request an Account.
  6. From the Home menu, select the Client Login Area folder.
  7. Select the MIMS folder.
  8. Select the folder for the month you are updating. E.g MIMS March 2022.
  9. Locate the download file for that month. E.g. MimsForZedmedUpdateMarch2022.exe.
  10. Select the expand icon next to the file.
  11. Select Download.
  12. Select the downloaded file.
    You may have the option to save the file to the desktop or an accessible folder, or it may automatically download to your default download location.
    Because it is a large file, it may take 15 to 30 minutes to download, depending on your internet connection.
  13. Select or double-click on the downloaded MIMS file.
    The MIMs authentication login will open.
  14. Enter the password you get with your MIMS subscription.
    The MIMS update will run and display its progress.
