The acquisition brings together IMS Health’s information and technology services with Forcea’s hospital-based technology solutions to drive more effective clinical and cost decisions. Forcea solutions will leverage IMS One, the company’s intelligent cloud-based platform that seamlessly provisions industry information and integrates IMS Health, client and third-party data for faster, more insightful decision making. Financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
IMS Health’s global footprint and Forcea’s performance management applications will accelerate the delivery of mission-critical, customizable insights to improve outcomes and support the ongoing transformation of healthcare systems.
“For life sciences organizations and providers, the challenge today is to connect and coordinate insights that make vast amounts of information more actionable and healthcare systems more cost efficient—all while improving patient care,” said Alistair Grenfell, president, North Europe, IMS Health.
