Henry Schein's "ViiveA®" Practice Management Software Named "Best Of Class" By Pride Institute

MELVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world's largest provider of healthcare products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners, announced today that it has received the Pride Institute's "Best of Class" award in emerging technologies for Viive ®, its new Mac-based practice management system.

Viive is the only practice management software system, and the only Mac product, chosen by the Pride Leadership Panel to receive this prestigious award.

"We are honored that the renowned dental community leaders of the Pride Institute have recognized Viive as the premier product in the emerging technology category," said Kevin Bunker, President, Henry Schein Practice Solutions.  "For dentists operating their practices with Macs, there is a real need for the superior performance that Viive delivers.  We are very happy to have the effectiveness of Viive underscored by this important recognition."

The Pride Institute panel comprises top opinion leaders in the dental technology industry, including Drs. Lou Shuman, John Flucke, Parag Kachalia, Paul Feuerstein, Marty Jablow, Larry Emmott and Titus Schleyer, who come together each year to discuss, debate and decide which products merit recognition. Organized by Dr. Lou Shuman, President of Pride Institute, the panel is committed to a selection method that is unbiased and rigorous.  This facilitates a dynamic process that, year to year, honors products both obscure and well-known, basic and aspirational.

"Dentists are running Macs in their practice at a growing rate, and we applaud Henry Schein for its forward-thinking and ability to bring such a cutting-edge, Mac-based practice management system to the market so quickly," added Dr. Lou Shuman.  "We chose Viive because it combines a unique patient-centric workflow with the robust, simple features that make Macs so popular. It is progressive, well thought out, incredibly easy to use, and delivered through an elegant interface that only a Mac can provide.  Viive is a breakthrough product."
