KipuHealth Introduces Enhanced Telehealth Service

Kipu telehealth is entirely integrated within the KipuEMR and is available now to all providers to easily schedule virtual sessions with patients as well as send meeting invitations with session links to all participants through email.

FREMONT, CA: KipuHealth, an electronic medical records (EMR) provider that focuses specifically on the treatment of eating disorders, substance use disorder, and behavioral health, has enhanced its telehealth options. The company now includes the option to schedule and release video group sessions directly from the KipuEMR, in addition to the Kipu Messenger portal as well as mobile app, offering providers and clients another way to continue treatment in a safe and HIPAA-secure setting.

Kipu telehealth is entirely integrated within the KipuEMR and is available now to all providers to easily schedule virtual sessions with patients as well as send meeting invitations with session links to all participants through email. The telehealth integration supports both group and individual sessions for a single date and time or recurring schedule as well as offering waiting rooms, breakout rooms, and the ability to screenshare.

"We have adapted to so many things over these months of the pandemic, among them, the need to address our healthcare needs remotely, in a way that is HIPAA-compliant and works for both patients and providers," stated Jeffrey Fiorentino, CEO of KipuHealth. "We built the telehealth integration to make sure that no one is forced to forego treatment because of the pandemic, and we anticipate telehealth as a long-term, if not permanent tool, for the future for our clients and their patients."

For clients who prefer a more private setting, KipuHealth also provides Kipu Messenger, a one-to-one telehealth service that offers patients and their care teams HIPAA-compliant messaging as well as document exchange through a smartphone app or Kipu Messenger's portal. Kipu Messenger enables treatment providers and care teams to send patients insurance coverage details and pre-admission forms, evaluations, consent forms, outcomes assessments, and more for patients to complete, sign, and return directly to the KipuEMR patient chart.
