The company hosted its first webinar on the ARRA on February 18th, the day after President Obama signed the bill into law. Approximately 400 C-level leaders from hospitals, physician groups and health insurance providers participated in the webinar, hosted by Dr. Harry Greenspun, chief medical officer for Perot Systems and Tim Quigley, leader of sales and business development for Perot Systems healthcare group.
