By using Kipu, we are improving the cohesiveness of our documentation, which in turn affects all areas of client care.

Thailand - Recognized worldwide as a state-of-the-art behavioral health care provider, DARA Thailand Drug and Alcohol Rehab recently has become the first international client to fully implement Kipu Systems, an industry leader in electronic medical record-keeping. Kipu Systems, currently in use in more almost 400 treatment facilities, benefits both staff and clients with technological advances that improve accuracy and accessibility to medical records, which ultimately allows more time for doctors, nurses, therapists and counselors to focus on actual treatment. Founded in 2012, Kipu Systems has its roots in a detox facility in Florida and since that time has been developed exclusively for addiction treatment. With the installation of Kipu Systems, DARA takes another leap forward in providing the highest quality drug and alcohol treatment.
“We are delighted to be the first treatment facility in Asia to use Kipu as our primary health records system,” said Martin Peters, DARA’s Senior Management. “This keeps us a step ahead by helping to ensure our important accreditation with CARF (an international certification agency that assesses behavioral health facilities for the quality and efficiency of services). By using Kipu, we are improving the cohesiveness of our documentation, which in turn affects all areas of client care. DARA is committed to forward-thinking treatment interventions and in advancing staff professionalism. Kipu is user-friendly and optimizes all of our processes.”
Kipu Systems covers the entire patient process from the first contact phone call through treatment and on into after-care. By integrating medical and administrative data, the system not only keeps track of all client data, but also provides reminders of tasks and helps staff members manage their caseloads. It saves money in several ways, including labor time during intake and evaluations, as well as in paper and other supplies.
“We are frequently called ‘the Ferrari of electronic medical records,’ and, at the same time, our system is easy to use,” said Cliff Levine, Director of Business Development for Kipu Systems. “By decreasing the amount of time it takes for the staff to complete documentation, our system results in creating more time to spend with clients. Kipu Systems works on mobile devices, which allows clinicians to free themselves from their desks. Staff members also can dictate their notes directly into the system, which is another time-saver. We will continually evolve and innovate our product as we work with our colleagues at DARA. We want to continue to provide cutting-edge technology for addiction treatment providers.”
