Hope Haven Receives $125,000 Grant From KipuHealth
Through implementation of the KipuEMR, treatment center will significantly increase efficiencies
CORAL GABLES, FL August 31, 2020 – KipuHealth’s Community Partner Program, which provides technology products and expertise to outstanding 501c3 non-profit facilities, announced the induction of Hope Haven to their group. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, Hope Haven provides life skills for chemically-dependent adults and families within a supportive residential environment, with the goal of taking their patients to a life of independence.
The KipuEMR is the industry’s most respected electronic medical records (EMR) platform developed specifically for the treatment of substance use disorder, eating disorder, and behavioral health. Through the KipuEMR, doctors and clinicians are able to process patient records and billing accurately and efficiently, allowing them to focus more time on what they do best, treating and helping patients.
Founded in 1976 by Arietta Black and Alice Trotter, two heroic women whose path to recovery from alcohol and drugs, fueled their passion to build a safe space for women to recover from alcoholism. Through their hard work, going door-to-door collecting signatures, they finally received a grant to lease their first Hope Haven home. Today, 44 years later, Hope Haven serves over 300 men and women a year and offers innovative programs that allows them to rebuild their lives to achieve a successful recovery and economic independence.
“We are so excited to implement the KipuEMR into our program,” said Kristin Blinson, CEO of Hope Haven. “Our commitment to the community has resulted in increased admissions and knowing that we can have all of our patient records, histories, and documentation in one central place that is accessible to our team, will allow us to focus on their recovery and ensure they return to a life of independence and health.”
Hope Haven’s residential programs have grown to several housing facilities across the city, including their main campus on North Tryon Street with 206 housing units, administrative space, a chapel, a commercial greenhouse, a commercial kitchen and dining areas as well as laundry facilities and meeting rooms. This space, once a thriving hotel and conference center, fell prey to drugs and criminal activity in the early 90’s and today serves as a pillar of hope for the community.
“Hope Haven has been serving the Charlotte community for over 40 years. We can’t think of a better team to welcome to our family,” said Jeffrey Fiorentino, CEO of Kipu Health. “We recognize that non-profit facilities struggle financially to acquire the best and most efficient tools, and we know that with the KipuEMR, they’ll experience more precision and efficiency and less clerical errors that often slow down treatment progress. They will have more time to do what matters most, treating their patients on a one-to-one level and put them on a path to independence and dignity.”
KipuHealth is the leading enterprise software provider serving the substance use, mental health, and eating disorder communities with its suite of cloud-based products. The KipuEMR, a fully configurable electronic health record and integrated billing platform designed for — and within — the treatment community, is the largest and most widely implemented EMR solution for treatment, used daily by more than 80,000 users at more than 1,800 facilities worldwide. The KipuCRM is a companion platform that manages the entire patient life cycle from the very first call through admission, integrating call center, referral, and marketing campaign management.
