KipuHealth: Our Customer Support Team Makes Magic Happen
CORAL GABLES, FL- Month, day, year – Miami-based KipuHealth, an electronic medical records (EMR) provider that serves the Substance Use Disorder (SUD), Eating Disorder (ED) and Behavioral Health treatment community, humbly exceeded one million successful episodes of care and credits the customer support team for their success.
KipuHealth runs a 24/7 365 Customer Support department comprised of United States based full-time employees. Understanding that treatment centers don’t have regular office hours or weekends off, the company makes sure that whenever a client needs assistance, they are able to reach a fully-trained employee within minutes and continue providing their patients with quality and efficient care. Kipu customers wait an average of 17 seconds before being greeted by a team member, and the company boasts an average NPS score of 76%, which is well above the industry average.
“We talk a lot about our magical KipuEMR and how it has increased admissions and reduced operational costs for our partners,” says Jeffrey Fiorentino, CEO of KipuHealth. “What many don’t know, is that we have a fiercely dedicated team that focuses entirely on our customers, and they make the magic happen.”
Kipu’s Customer Support team goes through rigorous training when they join the company. Starting with Kipu Bootcamp, these employees are immersed into the industry, the language, the laws and then dive deep into the KipuEMR to become product experts.
“The role of our Customer Support team is to become a partner to the client,” says Jeffrey Fiorentino, CEO of KipuHealth. “We know that many of the centers we work with are low on resources, so we dig into our own resources and passion to serve our clients and make sure they’re using our EMR to its fullest potential.” Customer Support doesn’t stop at implementation. Kipu’s service includes upgrades, software customization, on-site visits and weekly continuing education webinars, all free of charge to the customer.
Hai Nguyen, Clinical Director for Los Angeles-based Avedis Recovery has experienced KipuHealth’s support first-hand. Nguyen, a seasoned addiction and behavioral health professional who has worked in this industry for several years has opened three companies, and always selects Kipu to be his EMR provider. “I’ve worked with other EMRs in the past, and the fact that I can get on the phone and speak to a human without waiting is a game changer for me.”
Nguyen noted that the energy and professionalism the Kipu staff has makes the difference. “You immediately get assigned a buddy, who stays with you during your journey. This team member gets to know you and your business so well, they are genuinely interested in the business needs, and very quickly, you develop a mutual trust and respect, which makes for a very effective relationship. There’s trust on both sides.”

The KipuEMR is built in an agile environment, where the software development team focuses on being flexible and efficient and delivering quick rollouts to ensure client satisfaction. “We make sure we get it right from the beginning so that our client doesn’t experience an interruption in service,” added Fiorentino. In an agile environment, Kipu is able to quickly embrace changes in the marketplace and adapt to the client’s evolving needs.
As a user of the EMR, Nguyen finds the simplicity and the way the platform is formatted to be the key element. Nguyen says, “It has to be user-friendly and your staff needs to know how to use this. The KipuEMR allows people to try something and understand where along the way they may have made an error and forces the correction. It makes for a highly-efficient tool.”
