The Clinical Information Modeling Initiative (CIMI) is an international collaborative process that seeks to define common formats for health information. By advocating universal standards, CIMI attempts to bring modern health-care networks closer to a globally compatible model.
Members of the CIMI group include private entities such as Kaiser and Mayo Clinic, as well as U.S. government offices, and government offices from other countries. Together, parties to CIMI attempt to define clinical information standards for items related to diverse conditions and vitals such as heart rate, blood sugar levels, etc. Ongoing meetings help to promote and define consistent standards.
