Video discusses the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act, Electronic Health Records (EHR) implementation and interoperability
PLANO, Texas, June 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Perot Systems Corporation (NYSE: PER) (www.perotsystems.com) today announced the release of its latest Webcast, "The Impact of The U.S. Stimulus on Healthcare IT," that discusses the latest developments in ARRA programs for the healthcare industry.
The video features John-David Lovelock, Gartner's Vice President of Research, and Dr. Harry Greenspun, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Perot Systems Healthcare Services. Lovelock discusses how the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) will affect the healthcare industry. Greenspun discusses how industry players can prepare themselves for the coming funding from the stimulus bill and maximize the amount they can receive.
With more than 20 years experience in information technology, Perot Systems is an industry leader in health IT, including in electronic health records (EHR) implementation and interoperability. Upon the passage of the ARRA legislation, Perot Systems also launched a new landing page with comprehensive information about the impact it will have on healthcare. This information can be found at www.perotsystems.com/insights.
"Perot Systems offers the full spectrum of IT services, and we're focusing on a couple of key areas. We want to leverage our work with EHR implementation, our extensive Health Information Exchange experience as well as our state-wide efforts to expand coverage, such as the Massachusetts Connector program," Greenspun said. "Our goal is to provide solutions that meet the long term needs while, at the same time, ensuring compliance with federal regulations in order to qualify for whatever funds may be available."
"Information is the key to making healthcare better. Healthcare's inefficiencies grow out of the fact that they don't have the right information at the right time," Lovelock said. "Interoperability is the basis for these organizations sharing information about the patients across the various care venues in a timely fashion so that we can reduce duplication of services, unneeded tests and preventable medical errors."
