PLANO, Texas, June 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Perot Systems Corporation (NYSE: PER) and New West Health Services -- Montana's second largest health services corporation -- today announced an agreement in which Perot Systems will host New West's enterprise core administrative system (CAS), and also will migrate its current Perot Systems DIAMOND 950 (TM) software to Perot Systems Xcelys 5.0 software, all while experiencing uninterrupted health administration for its plans members during the transition. Specific terms of the 5-year deal were not disclosed.

"This agreement is another milestone for New West as we pursue our goal of becoming the best health plan in Montana. Perot Systems' hosted solutions combined with its Xcelys core administrative software will give us greater product and service flexibility while improving administrative efficiency.
