Our businesses share four attributes: information, technology, innovation, and leadership. These four attributes work together to deliver outstanding results for our customers.

Information provides the insights needed to improve company performance, recognize and capitalize on consumer trends and understand the impact of medical treatments.

Technology automates business processes and improves productivity, enables the products and services we use every day and improves the quality of our lives.

Innovation delivers disruptive business models, initiates and accelerates changing consumer trends and shifts the focus from medical treatment to early diagnosis and prevention.

Leadership underscores all of what we do because change requires the courage to challenge the status quo, the wisdom to know when and the perseverance to turn ideas into outcomes.
