Our Story

Dr. David Stern has taken the company from the basement of an urgent care clinic to a 250-employee operation.

Starting in 2002, Dr. Stern worked with Drs. John Koehler, FACEP, and Terry Buzzard, FACEP, to develop an urgent care-specific electronic medical record and practice management software. The three physicians collaborated with a team of programmers to design and launch PiVoTs. The modified EMR template went live in six clinics that year.

Practice Velocity introduced PVMSM practice management software in 2006. A year later the company launched PV Billing services, and in 2009 the company unveiled VelociDoc™. The award-winning electronic medical record for urgent care and occupational medicine centers is now used by 99 percent of Practice Velocity clients.

In 2014, the company moved into new headquarters in a renovated Kohl’s department store in the former Machesney Park Mall. The headquarters features an open-concept design, with collaborative meeting spaces that fosters teamwork. Practice Velocity stresses four core values for each of its team members: team player, positive energy, continuous improvement and clients win.
