DANBURY, Conn. — IMS Health is looking to go public, the healthcare industry research and analytics company said.

IMS, based in Danbury, Conn., said it had filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a proposed initial public offering of its common stock, adding that it had not yet determined the number of shares to be offered or the price range of the offering.
