OAKLAND, Calif. (November 16, 2011) – SuiteMed(TM), a leader in ambulatory clinical systems, today announced that Arizona Health-e Connection has named SuiteMed a preferred vendor in its Vendor Alliance Program.

This will bring together group practices, critical access hospitals, community health centers and related healthcare organizations through sustainable two-year grants.
