Veritas to buy GE Healthcare software unit for $1 billion

por Thomas Dworetzky , Contributing Reporter
Veritas Capital is buying GE's health care tech unit for $1 billion, the firms announced today.

“Veritas Capital has significant knowledge and expertise in the health care IT space, and by operating as a stand-alone business under Veritas’ ownership, we now have the opportunity to further revitalize our product portfolio and pursue complementary acquisitions,” said Jon Zimmerman, vice president and general manager of Value-Based Care Solutions at GE Healthcare.

Rumors of a possible health care IT deal swirled around GE in October, 2016,

CNBC, The Wall Street Journal, Reuters and others are reporting unnamed sources who have confided that “exploration” into the matter was ongoing.

In addition to IT, the entire GE Healthcare enterprise includes magnetic imaging, medical diagnostics and drug discovery, and had a 2016 annual revenue of $18.3 billion.
