Thomson Scientific

  (Redirected from Thomson Scientific & Healthcare)

Thomson Scientific was one of the five operating divisions of The Thomson Corporation from 2006 to 2008. Following the merger of Thomson with Reuters Group to form Thomson Reuters in 2008, it became the "Scientific" business unit of the new company. In 2009, the Scientific business came together with the Healthcare business to form the Healthcare & Science business of Thomson Reuters. The healthcare business was sold in 2012 and is now Truven Health Analytics. Prior to 2006 the two businesses were combined as Thomson Scientific & Healthcare. In late 2011, Thomson Reuters announced a new organizational structure, with one of its divisions being Intellectual Property & Science.[1] IBM Corporation announced its intention to acquire Truven on February 18, 2016, with plans to make Truven part of IBM's Watson Health unit.[2]
