BACKGROUND

IQVIA

Around the world healthcare stakeholders are working to improve patient outcomes through treatment innovations, provision and better access to healthcare. IQVIA provides the information, technology and service solutions they need to drive new insights and approaches. With a global team of 60,000, we harness insights, commercial and scientific depth, and executional expertise to empower clients to achieve some of their most important goals: improving clinical, scientific and commercial results, realising the full potential of innovations and ultimately, driving healthcare forward.

We are one of only a few organisations that integrate real-world evidence, health economics, outcomes research, consulting, and health intelligence tools at the national and international levels across the healthcare value chain.

The position we are recruiting for sits within the IQVIA RWAS Global Business Unit (Real World and Analytics Solutions) which applies healthcare intelligence tools and Real World Insights expertise to deliver deep insights into the realities of healthcare delivery, patient populations, pathway design, the effectiveness of healthcare interventions and products, and value for money.  Ultimately, it will provide a path to better study and trial design, recruitment and execution.

European Data & Evidence Networks (EDEN)

It is our belief that availability and transparency of treatment data lead to improved patient care. As such, in collaboration with leading pharmaceuticals and in consultation with healthcare professionals, governments and patient groups, our rapidly-growing team of around 100 people is leading the development of two pan-European information infrastructure platforms:

  • The Collaboration for Oncology Data in Europe (CODE) will collate comprehensive, up-to-date and validated data from up to 2000 healthcare providers on how anti-cancer medicines are used in clinical practice, establishing the first comprehensive long-term European Oncology Data Network. For further information on this exciting start-up opportunity, please see www.code-cancer.com
  • The European Oncology Evidence Network will build a network of 15-20 hospital-based, anonymised clinical data centres to enable high-quality, observational-type studies on treatment outcomes and quality of care in oncology. Most of the research undertaken so far is clinical practice and health economics, with no trial or biomarker validation services developed to date.

Working with healthcare data providers across Europe, the initiatives will enable the oncology community to keep pace with innovation and derive the greatest value from anti-cancer treatments.

Technology is at the very core of our success and the enabler of our ambition to help connect treatment innovation to patient benefits and ultimately broaden the opportunity for individual patients to receive the therapies that are appropriate for them.

Why apply?

It takes insight, curiosity, and intellectual courage to transform healthcare. It takes brave minds. By reimagining a world without the consequences of disease, brave minds bring powerful ideas to reality. Not intimidated by complexity, they look beyond what’s expected and see what’s possible.

We welcome speculative applications from clinicians, researchers, data scientists and technology experts in other domains with transferable skills, a willingness to learn and the ambition to transform European cancer care.

If you have exceptional collaboration skills, are a creative problem solver, and are inspired by harnessing ‘Big Data’ responsibly to make a real difference to the lives of people with cancer, apply now to join our high performing, interdisciplinary team.

We know that meaningful results require not only the right approach but also the right people. Regardless of your role, we invite you to reimagine healthcare with us. You will have the opportunity to play an important part in helping our clients drive healthcare forward and ultimately improve human health outcomes. Whatever your career goals, we are here to ensure you get there! We invite you to join IQVIA™
