Date:4/6/2009

New Solutions will Promote Electronic Health Records (EHR) Implementation

ROUND ROCK and PLANO, Texas, April 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dell and Perot Systems today announced a strategic alliance where their combined delivery teams will provide fully-integrated global IT solutions that unite their best-in-class technology and services solutions to provide virtualized desktop, storage and server solutions for hospitals, health systems and physician practices - virtualized on premises or hosted either off-site or in secure, private clouds. Dell, a leading technology provider to commercial enterprises around the world, and Perot Systems, the leading healthcare technology solutions provider in the U.S., are jointly introducing their first series of innovative solutions that bring desktop mobility and virtual storage and server scalability to the Healthcare Industry at the HIMSS Annual Event in Chicago, Ill. These solutions are designed to help improve patient care and to help healthcare organizations achieve the standard of "meaningful use" for EHRs established in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

What this means for customers:

These new Dell and Perot Systems virtualized solutions will address these needs while simplifying and reducing the cost of EHR adoption so that healthcare providers can more easily achieve "meaningful use" for EHR Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
