Biography

David Klements is President & CEO of Qualifacts Systems Inc., the foremost provider of Electronic Health Records (EHR). Qualifacts' CareLogic enterprise electronic health record system streamlines scheduling, documentation, billing and reporting processes for behavioral health and human services organizations across the US.

With his entrepreneurial vision and strong leadership, David successfully led Qualifacts’ restructuring and turnaround, transforming the firm’s identity as a professional services business into a leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider. During his tenure as CEO, the company has been through two private equity recapitalizations, most recently by Warburg Pincus, which sees significant growth potential for Qualifacts through strategic partnerships and acquisition opportunities.

David has also spearheaded many partnerships while at the helm of Qualifacts, notably the partnership with Open Minds that created the Value Based Care for Behavioral Health online community. This innovative platform is the leading online resource on value-based reimbursement, developed for executives of mental health, human service and substance use organizations serving consumers with complex needs.

For his work, David has been honored as a NEXT Entrepreneur of the Year (2011) and Qualifacts earned the title of Company of the Year (2011) at the Greater Nashville Technology Council Awards. He currently serves on the Board of the Nashville Entrepreneur Center and has been a supporter of many Nashville organizations, including serving as past Board Chair for the Nashville Technology Council.
