Henry Schein Medical Introduces the Henry Schein 'RISE' Platform for Ambulatory Surgery Centers


New Website Offers Courses, Clinical Updates, Latest News, and Products to Help Surgery Centers Enhance Infection Prevention Practices

MELVILLE, N.Y., January 3, 2024 – Henry Schein Medical, the U.S. medical business of Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC), today announced the launch of Henry Schein RISE (Resources, Infection Prevention, Solutions & Support, Education) – a platform designed to provide ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) with infection prevention resources including access to third-party continuing education, timely industry news, clinical studies, and high-quality products.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 31 United States patients develop a health care-associated infection every day. And, as ASCs continue to perform more than half of all U.S. outpatient surgical procedures, Henry Schein Medical created Henry Schein RISE to help surgery centers enhance processes and protocols to keep patients and staff safe from infections. Through the platform, ASCs can easily find up-to-date infection prevention information and products in one place, helping to save time and offer a greater opportunity to focus on patient care.

“We are excited to unveil our Henry Schein RISE website, which encompasses infection prevention resources for all areas of care in an ASC – pre/postoperative care, operating room, sterile processing department, and overall facility hygiene,” said Scott Jackson, Vice President of Surgical Solutions at Henry Schein. “Henry Schein RISE reinforces our mission of being trusted advisors and consultants to our customers, helping ASCs continue to provide quality care for communities throughout the United States. We look forward to expanding the resources offered through Henry Schein RISE in the future.”

The platform features accredited continuing education courses and products from the Company’s infection prevention supplier partners including 3M, Ansell, Crosstex, Halyard, and PDI. It also features the latest clinical guidance and strategies from the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, and more. Additionally, the Henry Schein RISE blog offers educational content for ASCs.
