The new entity will be called Razorfish Health, as Rosetta’s healthcare business merges with Razorfish Healthware in the U.S.

Publicis Healthcare Communications Group (PHCG), the healthcare division of Publicis Groupe, announced today that a segment of Rosetta’s healthcare business joins its network to further strengthen PHCG capabilities for clients in health and wellbeing.
