Expertise: Access to key thought leaders

We attract and retain top talent across each of our practice areas, so you always have access to key thought leaders in drug development, commercialization, and safety. Nearly 80% of our researchers hold master's or doctorate degrees. Nearly all are published in their fields, many serve as peer-reviewers and editors for research journals, and several maintain university and industry advisory appointments.

Staff Stability: The retention connection

Our low turnover rates allow us to maintain stable project teams from inception to completion of projects, even on multi-year studies, and provide you with research continuity as your product goes through its development lifecycle. In our collaborative work environment, researchers take ownership of their work and find their jobs socially important and professionally rewarding—key contributors to our high employee retention rate.

Professional Affiliations: Enhancing our expertise and leadership

Because of their excellent reputation and professional associations, our experts are frequently called upon to participate on advisory committees and review boards. Through this work, they stay abreast of the latest industry trends and changes and they have a proactive role in guiding and shaping the industries we serve. Our affiliations with professional associations include the International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology (ISPE), International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR), and International Society for Quality of Life Research (ISOQOL). Several staff also maintain academic appointments with a variety of top universities.  

Independent Non-Profit Status: Results you can trust

As the only independent, non-profit organization in the industry, our primary objective is to provide the highest quality research and consulting services to benefit patients and improve public health. Our researchers believe what they do matters and their commitment to science, impartiality, and professional reputation results in unbiased research that you can depend on to make better decisions.

Quality Assurance: Sharing your passion for excellence

Our standards of professional performance are enhanced by having an independent Office of Quality Assurance (OQA). The OQA supports staff on regulations, guidelines, and the implementation of standard operating procedures and quality control processes that result in high quality processes and deliverables. All deliverables also go through a rigorous independent editing process.
