Henry Schein Launches New Mac-based Practice Management Solution

MELVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 25, 2012  /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, medical and animal health practitioners, today announced the launch of "Viive," a new dental practice management software for the Apple Mac computer.

Viive (pronounced "Vive") features a patient-centric workflow on a simple and clean platform to manage dental practices.  The new workflow takes advantage of the Mac operating system to provide access to all available management tools directly from one patient screen, streamlining task management to a single click.

Charts, ledgers, and other tasks are completed faster and more simply by eliminating the need to switch between modules.  "Viive has a very aesthetic, clean, beautiful look. Its patient-centric approach makes it easy to gain access to information, charts and management tools," said Dr. Derek Fine, a Viive user practicing in Denville, NJ.

Another reason for Viive's speed is its powerful PostgreSQL database, which loads charts and dental images almost instantly, synchronizes records in real time and allows updates to the same patient record from the front and back office simultaneously.

"One of the largest benefits of Viive is its backing by Henry Schein, which guarantees continued development of advanced features that integrate the office technology," said Kevin Bunker, President and General Manager of Henry Schein Practice Solutions.  "It also ensures that users will receive the highest level of customer service."

"With more dentists choosing the Mac platform, Viive will become an important foundation for the integrated digital Mac office," Mr. Bunker added.

Viive was built directly on the Mac OS X platform, providing the user with the same robust, simple features already built into the Mac operating system.  

"I love Mac computers because of their elegance, combined with simplicity and ease of use. Henry Schein successfully captured that balance in the Viive practice management system," said Liz Alexander, an office manager based in Doylestown, PA.

The Viive Practice Management system will be launched with a number of equipment partnerships that ensure a comprehensive imaging solution and integration of core technologies.  These include: Planmeca, digital x-ray and imaging; Digital Doc intraoral cameras; and Acteon dental imaging equipment.

This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
