Riverside Medical Center, a 336-bed hospital in Kankakee, Ill., is deploying San Francisco-based McKesson’s Practice Partner EHR and practice management solution.

According to Riverside, it will implement the patient record, appointment scheduling, and medical billing software from Practice Partner as part of an ongoing effort to strengthen its physician relationships in the community, and enhance the delivery of care by transferring patient information between the hospital and physician practices.

Riverside says it is rolling out the Practice Partner solution this summer, starting with a five-physician pilot program. The facility plans to target about another 100 physicians in the community, says the hospital.
