Henry Schein Launches New Mac-Based Practice Management Solution

In  August, I was invited to a think tank meeting put on by Henry Schein.  At the meeting, the company showed us quite a few cool ideas they were working on for the future.  Of course I had to sign documents declaring that I wouldn't reveal the secrets I would learn.  I was happy to do that as it allowed me to see things that I could then comment about in the future.  Well, the future is now and I'm excited that the official launch of the Schein Mac practice management system is here!.  I was impressed with what I saw back in August and I know that they've been hard at work on it since then, so I'm sure it's only gotten better.  If you are a Mac user that has been looking for dental software, this should definitely be on your radar.

Read on for all the details from the company press release:

MELVILLE, N.Y., November 25, 2012 -- 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.

  2. Because of these latest gadgets and technologies, people have put reading, and books, behind them. They have lost focus on the origin of everything, on how extremely important learning method is. Reading not only helps us to learn vital information, but it also allows us to use our imagination and make our creative mind work. We have begun to call books words like: outdated, useless, and old school which isn't true.
