Perot Systems Announces Special Financing Options for Stimulus Plan Healthcare Technology Upgrades
Date:5/21/2009

New Leasing and Financing Offerings Help Healthcare Providers to Accelerate Technology Investment to Meet Reimbursement Deadlines

PLANO, Texas, May 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Perot Systems Corporation (NYSE: PER) (www.perotsystems.com) today announced the availability of financing options to healthcare clients for technology projects such as the implementation of electronic health records which are being expedited because of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

These new financing options, available through Dell Financial Services, cover hardware, software, and network infrastructure purchases, as well as certain IT services implementations. The new offerings include customized options for credit-qualified hospitals, physician groups and other healthcare organizations that are seeking stimulus funding, but elements of the plans are also available to other credit-qualified clients of Perot Systems assessing ARRA stimulus payments. The financing options include a mix of competitive interest rates and deferred payment terms.

"The stimulus plan can have a far-reaching, positive impact on the quality of healthcare in our nation, and these financing options will help some clients bridge the gap between current investment needs and meeting the requirements necessary to take full advantage of the funds that become available in 2011," said Chuck Lyles, president of Perot Systems' healthcare group. "Perot Systems collaborated with Dell to help make that happen - to give healthcare providers the financial tools they need to accelerate their IT projects."

Perot Systems helps improve the delivery of care, reduce costs, and improve cash flow by providing innovative IT services and solutions to more than 1,000 hospitals nationwide. Perot Systems also provides these services to physician groups directly and to physicians affiliated with the hospitals it serves. Through hosted software solutions and contracts that provide clients savings on their IT and business process operations, Perot Systems helps organizations reduce the incremental investment necessary to adopt the latest clinical technologies and transform operations.

Dell and Perot Systems recently announced a strategic alliance to provide fully-integrated IT solutions that combine their best-in-class technology and services solutions to help healthcare organizations improve patient care, reduce costs and achieve the standard of meaningful use for electronic health records established in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

"Dell and Perot Systems are simplifying the acquisition and management of IT for providers with a range of on-premise and hosted solutions that address a variety of technology needs and budgets," said Dr. James Coffin, vice president and general manager of Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences. "With Low-interest DFS financing, Perot Systems customers can accelerate deployment of IT projects and preserve their capital for other strategic investments."
