PLANO, Texas, March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Perot Systems Corporation (NYSE: PER), the U.S. market leader for providing healthcare IT services and clinical transformation, today announced it will host a second comprehensive webinar about the impact that the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) will have on the U.S. Healthcare industry. The webinar will be held Thursday, March 12 at 10:30 a.m. Central time (11:30 a.m. Eastern), and will be open to healthcare industry leaders. Perot Systems also announced the launch of a dedicated section of its Web site, www.perotsystems.com/insights, that provides up-to-date information and analysis of the ARRA and related healthcare issues.

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.
