Following the merger of Thomson with Reuters Group to form Thomson Reuters in 2008, it became the scientific business unit of the new company.[4] In 2009, the scientific business came together with the healthcare business to form the Healthcare and Science division 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 and Thomson Healthcare.[5][6]
