Maximizing Value

At IMS Health, one of the cornerstones of our business is providing clients with superior information. We have made significant and sustained investments in the creation and development of our information, which is our intellectual property (IP). 

  • The IMS Health Third Party Program allows our clients to maximize the benefits they obtain from our licensed offerings while protecting our intellectual property.
  • When third-party vendors require access to our information on behalf of a mutual client, IMS Health needs to ensure that there are sufficient safeguards around our intellectual property.

Third-Party Access Program

The Third-Party Access program allows IMS Health clients to request a limited use license agreement for a third-party vendor to perform services for that client.

These third-party limited license agreements permit IMS Health clients to share IMS Health information with vendors for a pre-defined purpose and solely for the benefit of the requesting IMS Health client.

The third-party vendor may not use IMS Health data for their own benefit.

Program Request Process

To initiate a third-party access request, clients can obtain a portal ID and password by contacting their IMS Health account representative. Once you have an ID, access the portal and follow these steps: 

  1. Client identifies the vendor contact, key dates, intended uses, and IMS Health licensed offerings to be shared.
  2. Vendor contact is automatically notified and enters required vendor information.
  3. IMS Health processes the request and sends the IMS Health Third Party Limited License Agreement to the Vendor.
  4. Vendor signs and electronically submits forms back to IMS Health.
  5. IMS Health notifies the client contact and vendor that data sharing is permitted.
