Montfort Jones Memorial Hospital (MJMH) of Kosciusko, Miss., has selected NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, a developer of healthcare information systems tools, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, as components of its transition to an automated health IT platform.

MJMH serves rural communities in central Mississippi with 71 licensed beds. MJMH chose NextGen Inpatient Clinicals and NextGen Inpatient Financials for its clinical and financial platforms, according to NextGen of Horsham, Pa.

Implementation is scheduled to begin in early 2012 and coincide with the opening of two new nursing units at the hospital, the company added.
