Doylestown Hospital and Perot Systems Successfully Implement Advanced MEDITECH 6.0 Platform
Date:4/7/2009

MEDITECH's Advanced Clinical System brings enhanced look and feel to clinical applications and satisfies patient safety and quality of care demands

PLANO, Texas, April 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Doylestown Hospital and Perot Systems Corporation (NYSE: PER) (www.perotsystems.com) today announced the MEDITECH Solutions Group within Perot Systems has successfully assisted with the Pennsylvania-based hospital's implementation of an advanced Health Care Information System (HCIS). MEDITECH 6.0 features a graphically richer look and feel and is optimized to take advantage of the latest Advanced Clinical Application feature sets in order to satisfy the demands of today's patient safety and quality-of-care initiatives in the healthcare community. In addition to the advanced HCIS, Doylestown Hospital also contracted with Perot Systems for disaster recovery services which included the creation of a secondary data center.

"We recognized the value of migrating our applications to MEDITECH 6.0 to achieve our healthcare objective of delivering top quality care for our patients," said Rick Lang, CIO of Doylestown Hospital. "We searched for a solutions provider who could support us through the migration to 6.0 efficiently without disruption to the hospital's daily activities. We chose Perot Systems because of their extensive in-depth technology and application expertise. We also wanted to leverage the value of Perot Systems' close relationship with MEDITECH. Our project would not have been successful without the help of Perot Systems."

Perot Systems helped Doylestown migrate their system to MEDITECH's new 6.0 platform from MEDITECH's MAGIC platform. The migration plans called for a new infrastructure design, technology selection, technology implementation, and disaster recovery services, including the creation of a secondary data center to support their self-hosted disaster recovery solution. Perot Systems' consultants also provided implementation support on both the financial and clinical applications.

"Many hospitals today are evaluating the benefits of MEDITECH's new 6.0 platform, and as one of the effective avenues to achieve compliance with the new American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the interest in 6.0 is even greater," said Berk Smith, Executive Vice President of Perot Systems' healthcare group and global leader of the MEDITECH Solutions Group within Perot Systems. "As an early adopter of MEDITECH's 6.0 technology, Doylestown has successfully taken advantage of the advanced features and ultimately improved the delivery of care. Our technology and application consultants have worked closely with MEDITECH to gain an in-depth understanding of the requirements necessary for successful migration and are uniquely prepared to help hospitals, like Doylestown, implement 6.0."

"We needed a cost-effective alternative for ensuring MEDITECH system continuity," stated Lang. "Minimizing downtime is essential because our caregivers rely on the hospital's IT system. We leveraged Perot Systems' design and implementation expertise to achieve a robust disaster recovery strategy."
