Ann Arbor, MI, Jan. 12, 2015 — Truven Health Analytics™, a leading provider of healthcare data and analytics solutions and services, will present at the 33rd Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference. Mike Boswood, president and CEO of Truven Health Analytics, will discuss the company’s extensive expansion throughout 2014, and provide insights into its advanced solutions for managing the evolving healthcare market requirements created by the convergence of risk and care management.

Boswood, who oversaw Truven Health’s three major acquisitions this past year (Simpler Consulting, Joan Wellman & Associates, Heartbeat Experts), will showcase how the company is working to combine its existing Big Data analytics with its growing capabilities in key healthcare fields including operational and clinical performance improvement, population health, payment integrity, health insurance reform, benefit program design and evaluation, life sciences market entry and outcomes research, and Lean transformation. Consistent with its long-term growth strategies, the company has redefined and expanded its markets to better serve the growing array of important stakeholders in the healthcare industry, reflected in the recent launch of its Payer Solutions business unit and the creation of the Provider Solutions business unit earlier this year. Truven Health continues to see compelling growth opportunities in commercial and government healthcare markets in the year ahead.
