About IQVIA and its Patient-Centered Solutions team

IQVIA provides scientific services spanning clinical trials, real world evidence, and consulting in all areas of the product lifecycle. The Patient Centered Solutions (PCS) team leads the industry in generating data to ensure that the patient voice is incorporated into the development and commercialization of medication and other drug/non-drug interventions. We focus on understanding and meeting the needs of our clients – mostly life science/pharmaceutical companies – through the application of broad consulting expertise and technical scientific knowledge to design scientifically rigorous research. This research is broad and includes qualitative (e.g. interviews, focus groups), quantitative (e.g. clinical outcome assessments (COAs)/patient-reported outcomes (PROS), preference research) and passive (e.g. digital health technology tools) approaches to understand patient, caregiver and healthcare professional experiences and expectations of disease and treatment.

To meet our client expectations and retain the excellent reputation built up over time the IQVIA PCS team is committed to recruiting, training and supporting driven individuals who have both consulting skills and life science skills that can be applied to PCS research activities. Individuals joining us are assured of a rewarding and progressive career in patient-focused research. You’ll have the opportunity to address challenging client issues, across multiple geographies with a hands-on influence in developing and delivering solutions.  We operate in a truly multi-cultural, collegial and collaborative work environment that is rich in development and growth.
