I am proud of all of the professionals in our global network who have worked so hard for this designation.”

The IDC Health Insights report is a biannual IT budget-tracking survey of several hundred life science companies. The survey, which polled 102 industry leaders on planned IT budgetary spending, technology priorities and vendor preference, asked participants to identify which vendors servicing the life science market they expect to spend money with on software, hardware and IT services over the next 12 months.
