Dec. 6, 2009 - PRLog -- The US Patent Office has issued a patent to Practice Velocity®  Urgent Care Solutions® ( for its modified EMR Practice Velocity Template (PiVoT™) system.

PiVoT ( is used by more urgent care centers for charting and coding than any other system.  PiVoT allows physicians to use paper templates to document a patient visit.  The SOAP note templates are scanned into a computer and transmitted across the Internet to the Practice Velocity servers, where data is extracted from the scanned images.  The Practice Velocity software systematically analyzes the extracted data for E/M, CPT, HCPCS and ICD-9 codes.  In 98% of visits, suggested codes are posted in the system within three minutes.

Practice Velocity ( CEO David Stern, MD said: “We are delighted to receive this patent, as it recognizes the uniqueness of PiVoT and this gives the protection of the US Government for the intellectual property rights of Practice Velocity.”

PiVoT is fully integrated with Practice Velocity Management™  (PVM), a full-service practice management system that allows for patient registration, insurance entry, real-time insurance eligibility verification, credit card billing, automated input of codes from PiVoT, electronic billing, electronic remittance and systematic collections.  PiVoT is, also, integrated with Viztek computerized radiology system.

From its inception PiVoT was designed to allow physicians to familiarize themselves on paper templates with the formats they will use on a tablet PC in the VelociDoc Urgent Care EMR system ( .  Transition from paper templates to the computer screen for data entry is a snap.

All Practice Velocity systems have been designed by urgent care professionals, in urgent centers for urgent care physicians.  The staff responsible for designing the systems have a combined 100+ years of experience in urgent care centers.  In 2009, more urgent care centers (>600 urgent care centers in 47 US states) use Practice Velocity systems for charting and coding than any other system.  In addition, a division of Practice Velocity, PV Billing (, offers specialized urgent care billing services for over 85 urgent care centers in 20 states.
