Continually advancing technologies and methodologies enable health and biomedical data to be generated at a much faster pace than the tools and systems that have been built and implemented to manage and analyze them. Increasingly, scientists are challenged in performing their analyses not by a lack of data, but by the sheer volume of data and limited capabilities to sift through and translate them. ICF uses computing resources in innovative, customer-tailored ways, helping scientists and decision makers see through and understand the data to make better decisions.
ICF understands applied science and the perspective of the scientist. We create systems and tools that are effective for scientists by supporting their workflow, processes, and data needs, rather than forcing them and their data to conform to a system designed without their needs in mind. In short, our data systems, IT applications, and support processes are developed to realize the scientist’s objectives within their given environment.
Our health science computing services span the entire lifecycle of health and research data—from generation to analysis to decision making. We develop IT applications that support faster scientific discovery, clearer interpretation, and more transparent reporting. With our expertise in knowledge management, bioinformatics, and science communication, we can make health science information more meaningful, more accessible, and more rapidly available.
