A message from our CEO, Jeffrey Fiorentino
Hello, and thank you for considering Kipu Systems. We have worked hard to make Kipu the best EMR software for addiction treatment — but if I could only have your attention for a moment, there’s so much more to the story.
You see, through a personal bout with addiction in 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.
That’s why I recently purchased InRecovery Magazine, a 5-year-old labor of love by publisher Kim Welsh. We’ll be pouring resources into making InRecovery Magazine and its website a broadly followed and important voice of addiction — an essential resource to help addicts and their families. With this voice, we can help eliminate the shame and stigma associated with addiction, and broaden the number of people who seek treatment.
It’s a total failing – a black eye on our country – that out of the 27 million addicts in the US, only 2 million a year get 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 will beat addiction.
Another area we have targeted is the first 12 months after treatment. This is the time when an addict is most frail and likely to relapse. In fact, per the US Surgeon General, likelihood of a relapse is over 60% in the first year after treatment. That’s why I also acquired a company called PingMD® — a tele-health platform that took $13 million and six years to build.
We will re-purpose this technology to build a new level of care called “RecoveryBound™” – an intensive year long post-treatment program complete with curriculum, multimedia content, exercises, tele-health and more. We will make this available to you, the treatment professional, as a follow-up program to treatment. RecoveryBound will then be followed by 4 years of AfterCare.
This is all part of the overall Kipu eco-system, which I hope you’ll consider when making an investment in your EMR software.
I’ve put my money where my mouth is, and we re-invest every penny that comes back into the company. In fact, my personal salary is only $1 per year, because this is an important cause – and there are so many things we need to accomplish.
We also give back to our community, with a commitment to return 10% of our bed/patient count back to deserving facilities that help our vets and destitute addicts. So far, we have granted over $5 million to treatment centers.
When you use Kipu, you not only take advantage of the very best EMR system 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.

Hear What Our Clients Are Saying
Being a startup on the smaller side, we were working with a limited budget and Kipu initially gave us a sticker shock. We shopped around and found that a lot of new employees would actually recommend Kipu as the best. We in actuality came back full circle and signed with Kipu. We just wished we had listened to our colleagues from the beginning. It would have saved a lot of time and effort.
