The name inVentiv Medical Management reflects a full-suite of integrated, innovative service solutions including: iProcert™, a physician-led utilization review service; Case Management; iHealth™, a comprehensive wellness program; Disease Management; and Accountable Care Solutions™; a balanced solution promoting cost-effective, safe, and integrated care for patients with cancer, cardiovascular, or chronic kidney disease.
