iMed is a powerful electronic system for storage of data from patients with Multiple Sclerosis.

The iMed project was initiated in March 1999, and a beta version was first presented during the ECTRIMS 99 congress in Basel, Switzerland. iMed version 1.0 was launched in January 2000.

Since then, regular upgrades were released based on input and requests from many iMed users and MS experts in the world. iMed rapidly became a software leader for the management of MS patient records.

It allows you to manage and display all the important information about your patients, including their medical history, neurological status, relapses, treatments, neurological rating scores on various scales (EDSS, Scripps Neurological Rating Scale (SNRS)), and results on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and evoked-potentials tests

iMed has an intuitive user interface and clear data structure, which allows you to become immediately productive. In particular, iMed provides interactive graphical charts, which allow you to quickly analyze data on multiple patients, or to drill-down to the details on a specific patient.By providing secure multi-user support, iMed allows physicians in a hospital or medical center to share a single patient database between multiple users and assign appropriate rights and data access privileges to each user account.
