Job Description

IQVIA™ is the leading human data science company focused on helping healthcare clients find unparalleled insights and better solutions for patients. Formed through the merger of IMS Health and Quintiles, IQVIA offers a broad range of solutions that harness the power of healthcare data, domain expertise, transformative technology, and advanced analytics to drive healthcare forward.

About the Team

IQVIA's UK-based Primary Intelligence team works closely with other teams within its Commercial Services division.

The team leverages both proprietary methodologies and gold standard market research techniques to conduct both quantitative and qualitative market research and analysis, and generate insights and recommendations which address a broad spectrum of commercial questions across the product life-cycle. Most fieldwork is managed and carried out by an in-house team which leverages IQVIA's own healthcare provider panels.
