Perot Systems offers financing for tech projects
Perot Systems (Plano, Texas) reported 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, will 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."
