CORAL GABLES, FL- February 11, 2021 – Coral Gables, FL based KipuHealth, maker of the highly successful KipuEMR, an Electronic Medical Records system specifically designed for Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and Behavioral Health treatment communities, announced its final grant tally for fiscal year 2020 to non-profits and other in-need organizations. Last year, Kipu granted $2,525,000 to deserving treatment centers across the United States, bringing the grant award total to more than $18 million.
“It’s truly the best part of my job,” said Jeffrey Fiorentino, CEO of KipuHealth, “When we encounter a non-profit (501c3) facility that’s struggling to provide care – especially now in the COVID-19 era, we do everything we can to help. These centers treat homeless, underserved, and at-risk populations. Technology can change the game for them. By providing these facilities with the modern, efficient and fully compliant Kipu platform, clinicians and doctors can eliminate hours – even days – of manual work and focus their time and effort on treating their patients. And that means improved outcomes for everyone.”
Notable grant recipients for this year are located throughout the United States, offering various programs and levels of care. Among 2020’s grant recipients are these deserving facilities:
