Proven and leading the industry for 20+ years

An ED management system as capable as EDIMS didn’t just materialize overnight. It evolved over 20 years of design and testing in the intense workplace of emergency medicine.

Once reserved for the use of the physicians that originally developed it, commercial marketing and sales of the EDIMS system began in 2008. EDIMS is now deployed at hospitals nationwide and our client list is growing rapidly.
