IMS Health Quality Assurance

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the IMS Health World of Quality Assurance.

IMS Health measures and assesses the quality of our data in two ways: the accuracy of our market estimates - a result from mapping our data with sales information from pharmaceutical manufacturers - and the timely delivery of our offerings. These two elements, along with specific actions to improve or preserve quality, come together in our Annual Report on Quality Assurance, known as ACTS.

Traditionally a print publication, ACTS is now available online in PDF format, getting to its readers more quickly and enabling more dynamic and interactive use.

To save the most recent version of ACTS 2015, or one of its two predecessors on your PC, please right-click any of the icons below and select "Save Target as..."; for online viewing, please click "Download ACTS ... PDF."

Yours sincerely,
