About the IMDA
IMDA (Independent Medical Specialty Dealers Association) is an association of dealers and manufacturers that specializes in bringing new technologies to healthcare providers. There are many dealers in the market, both national and local, that provide standard of care products to the healthcare providers, but they cannot offer the specialty functions that are required when introducing a new technology. IMDA members are “Best in Class Regional Dealers” that bring those functions to a changing healthcare market so that providers can utilize new technology to meet their goals of providing better care, reducing the cost of care, and sustaining their organizations in their specific market.
