    • Description:
      Countermeasures are interventions taken to help prevent or slow the spread of disease. An important way the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) helps keep our nation safe when public health emergencies (such as an influenza pandemic, natural disaster, or national security emergency) occur is by distributing and tracking the use of medicine and supplies used to address the health threat. Such medicine and supplies are commonly called medical countermeasures.

      When responding to events that put people’s health at risk, public health officials need timely, accurate information about their countermeasure supply, distribution, and use at the local, state, and national levels.

      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.
