MELVILLE, N.Y., Feb. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HISC) announced today the launch of new products, services, and solutions designed to empower practitioners to operate more efficient, profitable practices while providing high quality care to their patients.
The new offerings will be unveiled at this year's North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) Conference, where attendees can also learn about the growing role of technology during conversations between company leaders and industry experts through #ScheinChats, Henry Schein's Facebook Live interview series.
The six companies that comprise Henry Schein Animal Health's presence at the show—Henry Schein Animal Health, AVImark, ImproMed, Vetstreet, Kruuse, and scil—are united under a single theme: "Empower Your Practice." Convention attendees are encouraged to tour each company's booth and speak with company representatives to learn how Henry Schein can be the total solutions provider for their practice while keeping them on the cutting edge of the latest technology. Attendees who visit all six booths will receive a gift and a customized post-show prescription for ways to improve the health of their veterinary business.
Henry Schein's ability to provide its customers with products from some of the world's most innovative companies will be on display at the scil booth (#2507), where a new diagnostic solution from Samsung will be introduced. And practitioners eager to gain a greater understanding of how to measure and monitor their business's efficiency and profitability can visit the AVImark (#2401) and ImproMed booths (#2601) to learn more about the Sparkline Scorecard. This solution integrates with AVImark and ImproMed practice management software to provide veterinarians with a dashboard that identifies a practice's strengths and opportunities for improvement by tracking 40 key performance indicators on a monthly basis, such as customer loyalty and revenue growth and retention.
"At this year's NAVC Conference, Henry Schein is excited to demonstrate to veterinarians how its family of companies can connect every aspect of their practice's operations to enhance efficiency, workflow, profitability, and the level of care provided," said Fran Dirksmeier, President, Henry Schein Animal Health, North America. "It is also an opportunity for Henry Schein to offer practitioners direct access to industry thought-leaders who will discuss the growing influence of technology on the industry and how veterinarians and their staffs can best navigate and capitalize on emerging trends."
