FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
September 25, 2017, Miami, FL. KipuEMR has been selected by The Cabin Group, an elite group of international treatment centers with headquarters in northern Thailand. The Cabin Group offers premium treatment services for alcohol, drug and process addictions, trauma, mental health and eating disorders. The Cabin Group operates nine locations across the region.
“KipuEMR was chosen after an extensive two-year competitive evaluation,” remarked Jeffrey Fiorentino, CEO of Kipu Health. “This is a landmark implementation for Kipu, and not only expands Kipu’s growing list of international clients but also expands our use by large enterprise clients.”
KipuEMR was designed in Agile Development, enabling the company to quickly implement changes based on users’ specific needs. The Cabin Group will also immediately begin using PingMD a highly-secure, messaging and telehealth application, and will be utilizing a specific hosting platform set up by Kipu in the Asian Pacific region to comply with local healthcare data regulations.
“As The Cabin Group is a premier addiction treatment provider, we put considerable time and effort into selecting an EMR to meet our high standards,” said The Cabin Group Chief Clinical Officer, Fiona Markham. “We will be immediately implementing KipuEMR and anticipate having it active throughout all of our facilities within the next few months. This also coincides with the launch of our two new sub brands, Resort 12 for the LGBTQ community and The Cabin Edge for 16-28 year old males, which were born out of a high client demand for more specialized forms of treatment. Although the treatment of addiction & trauma for all sufferers no matter their age, cultural background, sexual preference and gender identity is rooted in the same core principles, there are nuances to be found within certain client segments that can benefit from a more bespoke & sensitive approach. And Kipu has the functionality and flexibility to help us to manage these new brands.”
