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.

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.
