A message from our CEO, Jeffrey Fiorentino
I’d like to personally thank you for considering Kipu Health. We’ve worked hard to make Kipu the easiest, most compliant and efficient EMR platform for SUD, Eating Disorders, Behavioral Health and Autism — but keep reading, there’s much more to the story.
You see, through a personal battle with addiction within my family, I am not on the outside looking in, trying to “hawk” my EMR to make a handsome profit and run. I’m in — ALL IN, with everything me and my team can muster to fight this hideous disease known as addiction. That’s why we work tirelessly to perfect the Kipu eco-system and “do more” to help you serve your patients. More importantly, we have a holistic approach that goes beyond being an EMR — we have a higher calling.
I’m often discouraged by the fact that out of the 27 million addicts in the United States, only about 2 million per year receive treatment. HIV and AIDS got a voice, and look how far we’ve come against that foe. Then, consider cigarette smoking; it decreased from 45% to 12% use by American adults in 35 years. We need to compress those successes into 10 years, and if we do, we have a fighting chance to beat addiction.
We also give back to our community, with a commitment to return 10% of our bed/patient count back to deserving facilities. So far, we have granted over $15 million to treatment centers.
When you use Kipu, you not only take advantage of the very best technology available. You get a partner fighting addiction alongside your efforts. You help us plan for the future of OUR community, and fight the battles that must be waged to someday have a meaningful impact on addiction.
I invite you to email or call me 24 x 7 to tell me what you think, ask me a question, or just check in on our progress. We’re in this battle to stamp out addiction together.
