Henry Schein One, a subsidiary of Henry Schein, Inc., announces that it has acquired an 80% ownership position in Jarvis Analytics, a software company that develops comprehensive business analytics tools to help dental practitioners and their teams use data to diagnose problems, strengthen decision-making, and improve business performance.
Dallas-based Jarvis Analytics was founded by Steven Maroulis in 2017. Maroulis will continue to manage Jarvis Analytics and lead the Henry Schein One Dental Analytics business as executive director. The expected 2021 financial results from Jarvis Analytics are immaterial to Henry Schein One. The acquisition will be neutral to Henry Schein’s 2021 earnings per share and accretive thereafter. Additional financial terms were not disclosed.
“This partnership further demonstrates our commitment to offer the latest advances in technology through Henry Schein One, making it possible for dental practices to improve nearly every aspect of their business management,” said Stanley M. Bergman, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Henry Schein. “We look forward to a strong partnership with Jarvis that will enable dental teams to use data more effectively to build a better business.”
Dental practices have tremendous amounts of data stored in practice management systems, such as Henry Schein’s market-leading Dentrix®, Dentrix Ascend, and Dentrix Enterprise, as well as systems for patient relationship management, finance, marketing, and more. Unfortunately, many dental practices do not yet consolidate and analyze this disparate data. Jarvis simplifies the collection of data from multiple sources and organizes it so the information can be presented in real-time reports, dashboards, and other methods. Jarvis’ analytics tools can also help identify the impact positive changes may have on projected revenue, including hygiene recall, patient retention, case acceptance, and collection.
“Data mining is the new vehicle for accelerating dental business growth. Dental practices that know how to use dental analytics to analyze their data can see what has happened, what is happening, and make informed decisions about the changes they should make to improve performance,” said Mike Baird, Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein One. “The addition of Jarvis Analytics means dental teams will benefit by having a trusted partner with the size and expertise of Henry Schein One to enhance and support their dental analytics solutions. With these insights, practices owners and dental management teams can make better decisions to improve efficiency, increase revenue, and maintain clinical excellence.”
Jarvis Analytics will continue to be practice management system agnostic, working with more than 10 practice management systems, including Dentrix, Dentrix Ascend, and Dentrix Enterprise. The analytics tools offered by Jarvis Analytics will eventually become integrated into select Henry Schein One practice management systems, making it possible to deliver one digital workflow that simplifies management while improving business performance.
“From day one, our vision has been to help dental practitioners turn practice management data into powerful insights,” said Mr. Maroulis. “Our customers recognize the value of data analytics and have chosen to embed it into every layer of their business to drive operational efficiencies and growth. We’re excited for the future and look forward to the critical role Jarvis will undertake to help Henry Schein One become the leader in dental analytics solutions for dental businesses of any size.”
