- The Inventory Management and Tracking System (IMATS) helps CDC, state, and local public health departments manage their medical countermeasure inventories during emergency response operations or during the course of routine business activities. The versatile system is used to track inventory levels, monitor reorder thresholds, and increase the efficiency of emergency and routine warehouse operations such as receiving, staging, and storing medical countermeasures. The CDC Division of Strategic National Stockpile partnered with the CDC Division of Health Informatics and Surveillance in 2010 to create and deploy IMATS. Source: CDC. More here.
