MIMS updates the medicines data each month with at least 150 changes to the product information each month. It is very important therefore that users of eMIMS ensure that they have the latest information at their fingertips.

We send an updated eMIMS DVD three times per year – April, August and December. However, in between these release the monthly updates are provided on this site.

Full instructions on how to update the eMIMS application are detailed below.

Note: eMIMS Classic must not be running while updates are being applied.

Which Update?

The Full Update is the equivalent to the Partial Update PLUS the CMI Only Update.

If you wish to apply the Partial Update initially then your system will function correctly. However, should you wish to print the CMI in PDF format (standard or small font) then your printout may not be of the most recent PDF. You should therefore apply the CMI Only update too.

Select your preferred update and save the file to a suitable location on your computer or network.

Once the setup file has been fully downloaded, run it by double-clicking on the file from Windows Explorer and follow the prompts. The update program will then complete and your eMIMS will be ready for use with the latest information available.

Network Mode: You need to run the downloaded update file on a computer that runs eMIMS (ie one of the workstations). As in all server image updates, you need to be sure that eMIMS is not being used by anyone else at the time you are applying the update.

For more information on installation and troubleshooting, go to the eMIMS Knowledgebase.

Errata

PBS Erratum July 2018
The PBS issued an erratum containing the revised pricing of trastuzumab, glatiramer acetate and interferon beta 1-a. There are also small increases to the Dispensed Price Maximum Quantity price which are due to the annual indexation of the Administration, Handling and Infrastructure fee. A copy of the Erratum can be seen here.
