(Business Wire) QuintilesIMS today was named Asia Pacific Contract Research Organization (CRO) Company of the Year by Frost & Sullivan, a leading business research and consulting firm, because of its industry leadership and service delivery excellence. The evaluation used in Frost & Sullivan’s selection was conducted before Quintiles and IMS Health merged earlier this month.
