Institute for Medical Informatics, Statistics and Documentation, Medical University of Graz


The Institute for Medical Informatics, Statistics and Documentation (IMI) was founded in 1989 as part of Graz University. Since 2004, it is an institute of the Medical University of Graz. It has tasks in research and teaching and is indirectly involved in patient care.

Our research activities are primarily focused on scientific problems in the clinical-medical field, with emphasis on making clinical data usable for research, patient treatment and teaching. This includes the development and evaluation of tools and methods in IT and biostatistics, from data acquisition to statistical analysis. For this purpose, applications are submitted to national and European funding institutions. The institute strives for specialized and interdisciplinary research cooperation. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the projects, the institute cooperates with university clinics and institutes of the Medical University of Graz. Furthermore, we cooperate with public (health) facilities in order to evaluate effectiveness and efficiency of different programs for health promotion and prevention.

In teaching, we participate in MUG's diploma program for medicine as well as in the doctoral programs, PHD program, in the bachelor and master program for nursing science and in postgraduate education.

We offer various services, for example:

  • statistical consulting for medical research projects
  • data management for clinical trials
  • data extraction and reporting services for research and teaching.

These services are available for the employees of the Medical University of Graz as well as for external customers.

The objective of our work is to deliver high-quality, methodical contributions and to develop products for the support of our customers. In order to ensure a high level of work, the Institute maintains a Quality Management System according to ISO-9001:2015. The focus of our endeavours is the satisfaction of our research partners and associates, the customers of our innovative and significant services, as well as our students, which is the incentive for future developments.
