Practice Velocity®, LLC, an electronic medical record (EMR) and practice management software, start up consulting and medical billing provider for urgent care centers across the U.S., was named KLAS Category Leader for the urgent care EMR/EHR market, part of the 2014 Best in KLAS: Software & Professional Services report. This is the first year the urgent care segment was classified separately in the report.

KLAS researchers independently collect feedback from healthcare providers nationwide for an impartial overview of vendor performance. Software and services vendors that have excelled in their specific fields are awarded the Category Leader distinction.

“We are honored to be named KLAS Category Leader for Urgent Care,” Said David Stern, MD, CEO of Practice Velocity. “Our urgent care EMR continually rates as the top EMR for urgent care in independent surveys, something we value greatly because the approval comes directly from our clients.”

Practice Velocity’s EMR solution, VelociDoc®, had an overall performance score of 85.5, nearly 10 points ahead of its competitor and well above the software average in all segments.
