Vendor Alliance Program
Share |

The Arizona Regional Extension Center (REC) partners with the Health IT vendor community to bring additional value to Arizona health care providers through the REC Vendor Alliance Program.

REC Vendor Alliance Program – Value to Health Care Providers

The REC Vendor Alliance Program offers guidance and direction to Arizona health care providers allowing them the freedom and flexibility to select the EHR vendor best suited for their practice.

In November 2011, the REC published a list of vendors that have applied for and been accepted to participate in the REC Vendor Alliance Program. Vendors are categorized into one of three tiers:



Tier 1
Vendors in this tier:
  • Offer preferred pricing to REC members;
  • Meet Stage 1 Meaningful Use certification;
  • Meet additional Arizona interoperability requirements;
  • Participate as REC Educational Affiliates; and
  • Have a significant base of installed EHRs in Arizona.
Tier 2
Vendors in this tier:
  • Meet Stage 1 Meaningful Use certification;
  • Meet additional Arizona interoperability requirements;
  • Participate as REC Educational Affiliates in some instances; and
  • Have a growing base of installed EHRs in Arizona.

Tier 3
Vendors in this tier:
  • Meet Meaningful Use Stage 1 certification, and
  • Work to meet Arizona-specific interoperability requirements.

    Non-EHR Vendor Directory

    Due to frequent requests, the REC also offers guidance in selecting vendors in additional areas such as HIPAA privacy and security, IT managed services, hardware, network infrastructure, EHR interfacing and interoperability services, lab interfacing infrastructure and EHR financing. This guidance allows providers the freedom and flexibility to find the solution that is best suited for their practice.

    This summer, the REC received applications from vendors who sought to participate in the Vendor Alliance Program. After a review process, accepted non-EHR vendors have been added to the online, member-only Directory.

    Arizona HIE Marketplace

    The Arizona Health Information Exchange (HIE) Marketplace is a program established to assist any willing Arizona health care provider in identifying viable options to participate in the secure exchange of health information.  The first phase of the HIE Marketplace will review and approve health information exchange (HIE) options provided by a group of health information service providers (HISPs).  For providers, the program debut will be in mid-April with more information becoming available at that time regarding HIE options.

    The HIE Marketplace is administered by Arizona Health-e Connection (AzHeC) under the direction the State of Arizona and the Arizona Strategic Enterprise Technology office (ASET). 

    If you are looking to find out more about the Arizona HIE Marketplace, including timelines and the application process, please visit the Arizona Health-e Connection website.
