Merge Healthcare Inc. develops and distributes healthcare software solutions.


In October 2015, IBM announced its acquisition of Merge Healthcare was complete, to be part of IBM's Watson Health business unit.[1]

Several Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Class 2 Device Recall notices concerning Merge LIS were posted by the FDA between 2016 and 2017.[2][3] Sometime after June 2017[4], the Merge Healthcare website updated to reflect the new ownership of IBM Watson Health, and the Merge LIS page disappeared. The product is presumed to no longer be offered.
