 ITEM 2.   ACQUISITION OR DISPOSITION OF ASSETS

          On May 17, 1996, Quality Systems, ("QSI") acquired
Clinitec International, Inc. ("Clinitec"), a Pennsylvania
corporation, in a forward-triangular merger (the "Acquisition"). 
The Acquisition was achieved pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of
Merger (the "Merger Agreement"), dated May 16, 1996, by and among
QSI, Clinitec, CII Acquisition Corporation ("Sub"), a California
corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of QSI, and certain
principal shareholders of Clinitec (as indicated in the Merger
Agreement).  Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Clinitec was
merged with and into Sub, with Sub surviving as a wholly-owned
subsidiary of QSI.  In connection with the Acquisition, the
shareholders of Clinitec (other than QSI) received an aggregate
of 309,846 shares of QSI Common Stock and $4,896,000 in cash on a
pro rata basis as set forth in the Merger Agreement.  In
determining the aggregate purchase price for Clinitec, QSI took
into account the value of software companies of similar industry
and size to Clinitec, comparable transactions, and the market for
software companies generally.

          In April 1995, QSI acquired a 25% ownership interest in
Clinitec, and with the completion of the Acquisition acquired the
remaining 75% of Clinitec that it did not own.  The shareholders'
vote of Clinitec unanimously approved the Acquisition.  In
addition, Sheldon Razin, an officer, director and shareholder of
QSI and a member of the Clinitec Board of Directors, abstained
from the Clinitec Board's vote on the Acquisition.

Mr. Cline has also been named a director and Executive Vice President of QSI. Sheldon Razin, QSI's Chairman and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased to have Clinitec on our team. Clinitec's product NextGen permits scanning, annotation, retrieval and analysis of medical records in all formats, from documents to photographs to x-rays. With the addition of Clinitec, QSI is able to provide its clients with a comprehensive information management solution." Clinitec, with headquarters in Horsham, PA, will operate as an independent unit of QSI and will continue to develop, market and support NextGen. "We're excited about this opportunity to leverage QSI's broad financial resources and customer-oriented reputation," stated Cline. In April 1995, QSI acquired a 25% ownership interest in Clinitec. With the completion of this current transaction, QSI acquired the remaining 75% that it did not previously own for approximately $4.9 million in cash and 309,846 shares of QSI common stock. For purposes of this acquisition, the shares were valued at $22.25 per share, or $6.9 million, for a total purchase price of approximately $11.8 million. The transaction will be treated as a purchase for accounting purposes.

ARTICLE II THE MERGER 2.1 The Merger. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement and the Agreement of Merger in substantially the form of Exhibit "A" hereto (the "Merger Agreement"), Clinitec shall be merged with and into Merger Sub (the "Merger") in accordance with the General Corporation Law of the State of California ("GCL") and the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania ("LCP"). The Merger Agreement provides, among other things, the mode of effecting the Merger and the manner and basis of converting each issued and outstanding share of Clinitec Stock into shares of QSI Stock. 2.2 Effective Time. Subject to the provisions of this Agreement and the Merger Agreement, the parties hereto shall cause the Merger to be consummated by filing a properly executed Merger Agreement with the California Secretary of State in accordance with the GCL and properly executed documents with the Secretary for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in accordance with the LCP on the Closing Date (as herein defined), which Merger shall become effective on the date and at such time that such Merger Agreement and Articles of Merger are accepted for filing in the respective states (the "Effective Time"). The closing of the Merger (the "Closing") shall take place at a time, date and location to be mutually agreed to by the parties, which shall be no later than the second business day after the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in Article VIII (the "Closing Date"). 2.3 Conversion of Shares. At the Effective Time: (a) Each share of Clinitec Stock held by Clinitec as treasury stock immediately prior to the Effective Time and each Clinitec Right outstanding at the Effective Time shall be terminated and cancelled, and no payment shall be made with respect thereto; and (b) Each share of Clinitec Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, other than the shares of Clinitec Stock held by QSI, shall be converted into the right to receive that fraction of the Cash Consideration and the Equity Consideration equal to one divided by the total number of shares of Clinitec Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time other than the shares of Clinitec Stock held by QSI. Schedule 2.3(b) hereto sets forth the Consideration to be received by each Clinitec Shareholder. (c) Each Share of Clinitec Stock held by QSI immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be cancelled. 2.4 Surrender and Payment. (a) Each holder of a share of Clinitec Stock that has been converted into a right to receive the Consideration, upon surrender of a certificate or certificates representing such Clinitec Stock, together with a properly completed letter of transmittal covering such Clinitec Stock, will be entitled to receive the Consideration payable in respect of such Clinitec Stock. Until so surrendered, each such certificate shall, after the Effective Time, represent for all purposes, only the right to receive such Consideration. (b) Each Clinitec Shareholder shall receive a pro rata share of the Cash Consideration and the Equity Consideration in proportion to their respective equity interest in Clinitec, as set forth on Schedule 2.3. (c) No fraction of a share of QSI Stock will be issued by virtue of the Merger, but in lieu thereof each holder of Clinitec Stock who would otherwise be entitled to a fraction of a share of QSI Stock (after aggregating all fractional shares of QSI Stock to be received by such holder) shall receive from QSI an amount of cash (rounded to the nearest whole cent) equal to the product of (i) such fraction, multiplied by (ii) the Stock Price. 2.5 Tax-Free Reorganization; Exempt Transaction. The Merger is intended to be a reorganization within the meaning of Sec- tion 368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"). It is intended that the QSI Stock to be issued in the Merger will be issued in a transaction exempt from registration under the 1933 Act, by reason of Section 4(2) thereof or Regulation D promulgated thereunder. 2.6 Effect of the Merger. At the Effective Time, the effect of the Merger shall be as provided in this Agreement, the Merger Agreement and the applicable provisions of the GCL. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and subject thereto, at the Effective Time, the separate corporate existence of Clinitec shall cease and Merger Sub shall continue as the surviving corporation (the "Surviving Corporation") and shall carry on the business and operations of Clinitec and all the property, rights, privileges, powers and franchises of Clinitec and Merger Sub shall become the debts, liabilities and duties of the Surviving Corporation. 2.7 Certificate of Incorporation. The certificate of incorporation of Merger Sub in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be the certificate of incorporation of the Surviving Corporation until amended in accordance with applicable law, except that the name of the Surviving Corporation shall be changed at the Effective Time to "Clinitec International, Inc." 2.8 Bylaws. The bylaws of Merger Sub in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be the bylaws of the Surviving Corporation until amended in accordance with applicable law. 2.9 Directors and Officers. The directors and officers of Merger Sub at the Effective Time shall be as set forth on Schedule 2.9. From and after the Effective Time, until successors are duly elected or appointed and qualified in accordance with applicable law, (a) the directors of Merger Sub at the Effective Time shall be the directors of the Surviving Corporation, and (b) the officers of Merger Sub at the Effective Time shall be the officers of the Surviving Corporation. 2.10 QSI Restricted Securities. The shares of QSI Stock issued in connection with the Merger will be "restricted securities" under the 1933 Act, and Rule 144 promulgated thereunder, and may only be sold or otherwise transferred pursuant to an effective registration statement under the 1933 Act or an exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act. In addition, each Clinitec Shareholder will enter into a Lock-Up Agreement substantially in the form of Exhibit "B" hereto that will restrict the sale of any shares received as Equity Consideration for a period of two (2) years following the Closing Date. It is understood that the certificates evidencing the shares of QSI Stock issued in connection with the Merger will bear one or more of the following legends: (a) "THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933. THEY MAY NOT BE SOLD, OFFERED FOR SALE, PLEDGED OR HYPOTHECATED IN THE ABSENCE OF EITHER (i) A REGISTRATION STATEMENT IN EFFECT WITH RESPECT TO THE SECURITIES UNDER SUCH ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES AND "BLUE SKY" LAWS OR (ii) AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY TO QUALITY SYSTEMS, INC. THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED HAS BEEN DELIVERED TO QUALITY SYSTEMS, INC." (b) Any legend required to put third parties on notice of the existence of the Lock-Up Agreement. (c) Any legend required by applicable state law. 2.11 Dissenters' Shares. Notwithstanding the terms of Section 2.3 hereof and subject to Section 8.2(n) hereof, shares of Clinitec Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time held by a holder who has not consented hereto in writing and who has demanded appraisal for such shares (the "Dissenters' Shares") in accordance with the LCP shall not be converted into the right to receive the Consideration hereunder and instead shall be converted into the right to receive payment from Merger Sub with respect thereto in accordance with the provisions of the LCP, unless and until such holder fails to perfect or withdraws or loses his, her or its right to appraisal. If after the Effective Time such holder fails to perfect or withdraws or loses his, her or its right to appraisal, such Dissenters' Shares shall be treated as if they had been converted as of the Effective Time into a right to receive the Consideration. Clinitec shall give QSI prompt notice of any demands received by any such party for appraisal of Dissenters' Shares, and QSI shall have the right to participate in all negotiations and proceedings with respect to such demands. Clinitec shall not, except with the prior written consent of QSI, make any payment with respect to, or settle or offer to settle, any such demands.

All current employees and contractors of Clinitec, and to Clinitec's and each Principal Shareholder's best knowledge all former employees and contractors of Clinitec who were involved in or contributed to the development of any Clinitec Intellectual Property Rights, have executed such an agreement. (c) "Commercial Software" means packaged commercially available software programs generally available to the public through retail dealers in computer software which have been licensed to Clinitec pursuant to end-user licenses and which are used in Clinitec's business but are in no way a component of or incorporated in or specifically required to develop or support any of Clinitec's products and related trademarks, technology and know- how. 3.9 Property.

Clinitec is not in violation or default of any provisions of its articles or certificate of incorporation or bylaws or other charter documents, both as amended to date, or any material indenture, agreement or instrument to which Clinitec is a party or by which Clinitec or any of its properties is bound or affected which violation or default would have a Material Adverse Effect on the business, assets, operations, prospects or financial or other condition of Clinitec or any successor. To the best knowledge of Clinitec and each Principal Shareholder, Clinitec is in material compliance with all applicable statutes, laws, regulations and executive orders of the United States of America and all states, foreign countries or other governmental bodies and agencies having jurisdiction over Clinitec's business or properties. There exists no condition, event or act which constitutes, or which after notice, lapse of time or both, would constitute, such a violation or default under any of the foregoing. 3.11 Financial Statements. Attached to this Agreement as Schedule 3.11 are (a) the audited balance sheet of Clinitec as of December 31, 1995 and related statements of income, stockholders' equity and statements of cash flows of Clinitec for the year ended December 31, 1995 (the "Audited Financial Statements") and (b) the unaudited balance sheet of Clinitec as of March 31, 1996 and the related statement of operations of Clinitec for the three-month period ended March 31, 1996 (the "Unaudited Financial Statements").

Clinitec has delivered to QSI true and complete copies of all of the Lease Agreements as amended and in effect as of the Closing. Each Lease Agreement is valid and effective in accordance with its terms, and there is not under any of such lease (i) any existing or claimed material default by Clinitec (as applicable) or event of material default or event which with notice or lapse of time, or both, would constitute a material default by Clinitec (as applicable) and, individually or in the aggregate, would reasonably be likely to result in a Material Adverse Effect, or (ii) to the best knowledge of Clinitec or any Principal Shareholder, any existing material default by any other party under any of the Lease Agreements or, to the best knowledge of Clinitec or any Principal Shareholder, any event of material default or event which with notice or lapse of time would constitute a material default by any such party. 3.14 Officers, Employees and Consultants.

Clinitec has not engaged in any unfair labor practices within the meaning of the National Labor Relations Act which would, individually or in the aggregate, directly or indirectly result in a material liability to Clinitec. Clinitec is not presently, nor has it been in the past, a party to, or bound by, any collective bargaining agreement or union contract with respect to employees and no collective bargaining agreement is being negotiated by Clinitec. To the best knowledge of Clinitec and each Principal Shareholder, no labor union has requested, sought or attempted to represent any employee, representative or agent of Clinitec.

This AGREEMENT OF MERGER is entered into as of May 16, 1996 by CII Acquisition Corporation, a California corporation ("CII") and wholly-owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, Inc., a California corporation ("QSI") and Clinitec International, Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation ("Clinitec") as approved by the Board of Directors of each of said corporations and by the shareholders of CII and Clinitec: (a) Clinitec which is a corporation incorporated in the State of Pennsylvania and which is sometimes hereinafter referred to as the "disappearing corporation," shall be merged (the "Merger") with and into CII, which is a corporation incorporated in the State of California, and which is sometimes hereinafter referred to as the "surviving corporation." (b) The existence of the disappearing corporation shall cease upon the Effective Time of the Merger (as defined below) in accordance with the provisions of the Business Corporation Law of the State of Pennsylvania. The "Effective Time" of the Merger shall mean the time that this Merger Agreement is accepted for filing with the Secretary of State of the State of California. (c) At the Effective Time of the Merger, the name of the surviving corporation shall be changed to "Clinitec International, Inc." pursuant to the provisions of the General Corporation Law of the State of California. (d) The Articles of Incorporation of CII immediately prior to the Effective Time of the Merger shall be the Articles of Incorporation of the surviving corporation and shall continue in full force and effect until amended and changed in the manner prescribed by the provisions of the General Corporation Law of the State of California. (e) The Bylaws of CII immediately prior to the Effective Time of the Merger shall be the Bylaws of the surviving corporation and shall continue in full force and effect until changed, altered or amended as therein provided and in the manner prescribed by the provisions of the General Corporation Law of the State of California. (f) Immediately prior to the Effective Time of the Merger, the authorized capital stock of Clinitec consisted of the following: (a) a total of 1,000,000 authorized shares of preferred stock, no par value (the "Clinitec Preferred Stock"), consisting of 1,000,000 shares designated as "Series A Convertible Preferred Stock," of which 359,382 shares were issued and outstanding and all of which are held by QSI, and (b) a total of 3,000,000 authorized shares of common stock, no par value ("Clinitec Common Stock"), of which 1,078,250 shares were issued and outstanding. In connection with the Merger, QSI will issue 309,856 shares of QSI common stock ("QSI Common Stock"), $0.01 par value, and will pay $4,895,700 to the shareholders of Clinitec on a collective basis (the "Merger Consideration"), subject to certain exceptions. At the Effective Time (i) each issued and outstanding share of Clinitec Common Stock shall be converted into the right to receive that fraction of the Merger Consideration equal to one divided by the total number of shares of Clinitec Common Stock issued and outstanding at the Effective Time; (ii) each share of treasury stock and each arrangement, call, commitment, agreement, option, right to subscribe to, script, understanding, warrant, or other binding obligation of any character whatsoever relating to or securities or rights convertible into or exchangeable for, shares of the capital stock of Clinitec, or by which Clinitec is or may be bound to issue additional shares of its capital stock or other rights shall be automatically cancelled without consideration; and (iii) each share of Clinitec Preferred Stock shall be automatically cancelled. (g) Following the Effective Time of the Merger, each holder of a share of Clinitec Common Stock that has been converted into a right to receive the Merger Consideration, upon surrender of a certificate or certificates representing such Clinitec Stock, together with a properly completed letter of transmittal covering such Clinitec Common Stock, will be entitled to receive the Merger Consideration payable in respect of such Clinitec Common Stock. Until so surrendered, each such certificate shall, after the Effective Time, represent for all purposes, only the right to receive such Consideration. Each Clinitec shareholder shall receive a pro rata share of the Merger Consideration in proportion to their respective equity interest in Clinitec. No fraction of a share of QSI Common Stock will be issued by virtue of the Merger, but in lieu thereof each holder of Clinitec Common Stock who would otherwise be entitled to a fraction of a share of QSI Common Stock (after aggregating all fractional shares of QSI Common Stock to be received by such holder) shall receive from QSI an amount of cash (rounded to the nearest whole cent) equal to the product of (i) such fraction, multiplied by (ii) $22.25. (h) The directors and officers in office of Clinitec immediately prior to the effective time of the merger shall continue to be the members of the Board of Directors and the officers of the surviving corporation, all of whom shall hold their directorships and offices until the election, choice, and qualification of their respective successors or until their tenure is otherwise terminated in accordance with the Bylaws of the surviving corporation. (i) The Agreement of Merger herein entered into and approved shall be submitted to the shareholders entitled to vote thereon of the disappearing corporation and of CII for their approval or rejection in the manner prescribed by the provisions of the General Corporation Law of the State of California. (j) The disappearing corporation shall, from time to time, as and when requested by the surviving corporation, execute and deliver all such documents and instruments and take all such action necessary to evidence or carry out the merger.

(l) The effect of the Merger and the Effective Time of the Merger are as prescribed by the General Corporation Law of the State of California. Date: May 30, 1996 IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Agreement of Merger.

During the term of the Restriction Period (as defined below), in consideration of the performance by QSI and Merger Sub of their respective obligations under the Merger Agreement, the Shareholder shall not directly or indirectly enter into or engage in, or have any interest in any person, firm, corporation, partnership or venture (whether as an employee, officer, director, agent, shareholder, creditor, partner, consultant or otherwise), which engages in or operates a business (i) which develops, manufactures, sells, implements, provides or arranges for the provision of information systems and/or software or practice management systems and/or software for the health care industry and (ii) which is similar to the business conducted by QSI, Merger Sub, or any of their respective affiliates or subsidiaries during the Restriction Period (as defined below) in the geographic area indicated on Schedule A hereto, or in any way interferes or competes with the Company in the operation of its business of Clinitec following consummation of the Merger; provided, however, that nothing herein shall prohibit the Shareholder from owning less than one percent (1%) of the capital stock of a corporation the common stock of which is publicly traded on a national securities exchange or through NASDAQ. For purposes of this Agreement, the term "Restriction Period" shall mean the greater of (i) five (5) years from the Effective Date of this Agreement or (ii) the period from the Effective Date hereof through two (2) years following any termination or expiration of the Related Agreement. 1.2 Covenant Not to Solicit. During the Restriction Period, the Shareholder agrees not to solicit for, or divert or attempt to divert, directly or indirectly, any business of the Company (including, without limitation, the business of Clinitec as conducted by the Company following consummation of the Merger), or any customers or suppliers of the Company, to or for the benefit of any competitor of the Company. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, during such period that the Related Agreement remains in effect and has not expired or been terminated by either party thereto and so long as Shareholder uses his best efforts to assure that the actions of Merger Sub and all of its personnel serve the best interests of the combined QSI and Merger Sub entity, nothing shall prevent Shareholder (when reasonable and practicable for Merger Sub's business and operations) from doing any of the following: (i) selling software and/or systems to customers that utilize software and/or systems competitive with QSI software and/or systems; (ii) jointly bidding and/or jointly marketing with competitors of QSI on projects that customers or potential customers contemplate utilizing software and/or systems of QSI competitors; or (iii) responding to requests of customers or potential customers inquiring about non-QSI software and/or systems which may be applicable or compatible to the customers' needs. The Shareholder agrees that during the Restriction Period, he shall not solicit or induce any person who at any time within the previous one (1)-year period prior to such solicitation or contact shall have been an employee or independent contractor of QSI, Merger Sub or Clinitec to become employed by or associated with any other person, firm or corporation, and the Shareholder shall not approach any such employee or independent contractor for such purpose or authorize or knowingly approve the taking of such actions by any other person, firm or corporation or assist any such person, firm or corporation in taking such action. 1.3 Covenants Not Unduly Restrictive. The Shareholder acknowledges, represents and warrants to QSI and Merger Sub that the covenants of the Shareholder in Sections 1.1 and 1.2 hereof are reasonably necessary for the protection of QSI's or Merger Sub's interests under this Agreement and are not unduly restrictive upon the Shareholder. The parties intend that the covenant contained in Section 1.1 hereof shall be construed as a series of separate covenants, one for each geographic location to which Section 1.1 applies, and one for each year period. Except for geographic coverage, each such separate covenant shall be deemed identical in terms to the covenant contained in Section 1.1. In any event, if any restriction set forth in Sections 1.1 and 1.2 hereof is held to be unreasonable, then the Shareholder agrees, and hereby submits, to the reduction and limitation of such prohibition to such geographic area or time period as shall be deemed reasonable. 2. NON-DISCLOSURE. 2.1 Proprietary Information. The Shareholder has in his possession or may come into possession in the future of certain confidential and/or proprietary information relating to QSI's, Merger Sub's or Clinitec's business (including, without limitation, all customer names and customer lists, know how, patents, patent rights, trademarks, trade names, trade secrets, service marks and copyrights, and any applications or registrations therefor, maskworks, net lists, schematics, technology, computer software programs or applications (in both source code and object code form), and tangible or intangible proprietary information or material (excluding Commercial Software as defined in Paragraph 3.8(c) of the Merger Agreement), designs, licenses and proprietary rights) hereinafter referred to as "Proprietary Information." 2.2 Non-Disclosure of Proprietary Information. The Shareholder hereby agrees (i) to hold the Proprietary Information in strict confidence and to take all reasonable precautions to protect such Proprietary Information, (ii) not to divulge any such Proprietary Information or any information derived therefrom to any third person, (iii) not to make any use whatsoever at any time of such Proprietary Information, except, when providing services to QSI or Merger Sub, and (iv) not to copy any such Proprietary Information. Without granting any right or license, QSI or Merger Sub agrees that the foregoing clauses (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv) shall not apply with respect to any Proprietary Information that the Shareholder can document (a) is or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of a disclosure by the Shareholder, (b) was available to the Shareholder on a non-confidential basis prior to its disclosure by the Company to the Shareholder, or (c) becomes available to the Shareholder from a person other than QSI, Merger Sub, or their affiliates, employees or consultants not otherwise known by Shareholder (after due inquiry) to be bound by a confidentiality or similar type of agreement. The Shareholder may make disclosures required by court order, provided the Shareholder uses reasonable efforts to limit such disclosure and to obtain confidential treatment or a protective order, has provided the Company with reasonable prior notice of such required disclosure, and has allowed the Company to participate in the proceeding at its own expense. 3. REMEDIES. 3.1 Injunctive Relief; Indemnification. The parties hereto further agree that the covenants and obligations contained in this Agreement relate to special, unique and extraordinary matters and that a violation of any of such covenants or obligations may cause QSI and/or Merger Sub irreparable injury for which adequate remedy at law will not be available; and, therefore, that upon any such breach of any such covenant or obligation, or any threat thereof, QSI and/or Merger Sub shall be entitled to the immediate remedy of a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction or such other form of injunctive or equitable relief in addition to whatever remedies they might have at law. Furthermore, the Shareholder agrees to indemnify QSI and Merger Sub against and shall reimburse the Company for and in respect of any and all claims, demands, losses, costs, expenses, obligations, liabilities, damages, remedies and penalties, including interest, penalties and reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses that QSI and/or Merger Sub shall incur or suffer and which arise from, are attributable to, by reason of or in connection with any breach or inaccuracy of or any failure to perform or comply with any of the Shareholder's agreements or covenants contained in this Agreement. 3.2 Remedies Cumulative.
