inVentiv Health was until recently a leading privately owned US healthcare support services group offering a wide range of general outsourced services, including consultancy, clinical trials, pharmaceutical strategy, sales and commercial support. It was acquired in 2017 by smaller, publicly quoted competitor INC Research, a specialist in clinical research. For the time being, the group is still called INC Research / inVentiv Health. At the time of the merger, inVentiv already housed a substantial healthcare marketing division, formed in 2005 from the acquisition of inChord Communications by what was then Ventiv Health, the clinical services group spun out of former marketing services group Snyder Communications. As a result of selected additional acquisitions, the renamed InVentiv Health became one of the two largest networks dedicated exclusively to healthcare marketing. Its best-known subsidiary is healthcare advertising agency GSW Worldwide.
