The German Institute of Medical Documentation and Information (DIMDI), an authority within the German Federal Ministry of Health, provides high-quality information for all areas of the health system via Internet. It publishes official medical classifications and maintains medical terminologies, thesauri, nomenclatures and catalogues.
In addition, DIMDI develops and operates database-supported information systems for drugs, medical devices, clinical studies, health technology assessment (HTA) and health care data. DIMDI designs and maintains modern software applications for online access to its information systems and operates its own computer centre.
