About IMS Health
IMS Health-Intercontinental Marketing Services established in 1954 with a history of over 50 years, is headquartered in Fairfield, Connecticut.
The Company traces its beginnings to Fohlich & Dubow, who set up Intercontinental Marketing Systems (IMS) to create a new kind of Information Company that could enable organizations to make informed, strategic decisions about the marketplace. They called their venture Intercontinental Marketing Services (IMS), and they introduced it at an opportune time, when pharmaceutical executives had little data to consult when in the throes of strategic or tactical planning.
Although IMS started its business as a data provider, now IMS globally have successfully transformed from an information vendor to a leading provider of consulting and services to pharmaceutical market intelligence, providing critical information, analysis and services that drive decisions and shape strategies after over 50 years development and rapid expansion.
IMS serves clients about every major pharmaceutical and bio-tech company in the world in more than 100 countries and employs more than 7,400 people worldwide.
