Company news: IMS, SDI and inVentiv Health
SDI's Pollen.com launched an allergy alert app for Ford's dashboard SYNC system, aimed at reducing driver distractions. The app offers one-day alerts and four-day location-specific forecasts on allergy, asthma, cold and cough, along with UV sensitivity.
InVentiv Health is buying contract research organization PharmaNet Development Group. It's the firm's second CRO investment since January.
