PLANO, Texas, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Perot Systems Corporation (NYSE: PER) (http://www.perotsystems.com) today announced that JJWild, a company it acquired in August 2007, will fully transition its name to Perot Systems, completing an important milestone toward full integration. Perot Systems will now refer to the group as the MEDITECH Solutions Group which reflects its ability to access the global information technology provider's deep healthcare solutions expertise to benefit hospitals utilizing MEDITECH products.
"Perot Systems has a longstanding reputation as the largest IT services provider in healthcare, while the JJWild brand is synonymous with high-quality MEDITECH optimization and support. We believe the new name leverages both companies' strengths. The MEDITECH Solutions Group name is the culmination of our respective organizations coming together to create healthcare's most capable and creative professional services team -- one that remains dedicated to the MEDITECH marketplace," stated Chuck Lyles, President of Perot Systems' healthcare group.
The combined experience positions the MEDITECH Solutions Group to further leverage its application and technology expertise in support of its customers as they address the demands of today's patient safety and quality of care initiatives. "We believe the breadth of offerings now available through the MEDITECH Solutions Group within Perot Systems is invaluable in helping our customers respond to healthcare's increasingly complex requirements," stated Howard Messing, MEDITECH's President and COO.
"Combining JJWild's solid presence in the MEDITECH market with the strengths of our brand and overall healthcare capabilities enables us to better serve the MEDITECH community," said Berk Smith, Executive Vice President for Perot Systems' healthcare group and global leader of the MEDITECH Solutions Group within Perot Systems. "The acquisition has allowed us to broaden our offerings to include new products and services like MSite MEDITECH Hosting Solution and expanding clinical transformation services. This, in addition to our long-standing offerings such as MEDITECH application optimization, technology integration, and our JSite disaster recovery service, has enabled us to build a broad portfolio of offerings that will be extremely valuable for our MEDITECH clients," stated Smith.
