Analytic Services and Data Management

IMS provides a variety of statistical programming and IT support services for biomedical research. Our employees are organized into small teams that work directly with researchers and biostatisticians to manage and analyze their biomedical research data. This team based approach enables IMS to respond quickly and efficiently to the specific requirements of our clients.

IMS develops programs in SAS, R, and other statistical languages to analyze data for all types of biomedical research. Examples of data types that IMS has analyzed are from research areas such as clinical trials, prevention studies, epidemiologic studies, utilization rates for cancer screening, cancer prevalence rates, and genomic research data.

IMS has 45 plus years of experience in applying commercial and open-source software tools in addition to IMS’s own proprietary software in support of hundreds of clinical research studies and statistical research projects.
