KipuHealth Awards $150,000 to Hushabye Nursery of Phoenix, AZ, a Leading Recovery Center for Newborns with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome

Center becomes part of Kipu's Community Partner Grant Program

PR Newswire

CORAL GABLES, Fla., July 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- KipuHealth, an electronic medical records (EMR) company based in Coral Gables, Florida, announced it has named Hushabye Nursery of Phoenix, Arizona to its Community Partner Grant Program, which gifts technology products and expertise to outstanding, in-need 501(c)(3) non-profit facilities. Hushabye Nursery provides care for opioid-exposed newborns suffering from withdrawal symptoms, known as Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS).

Hushabye Nursery was founded by Tara Sundem and Kelly Woody, two caring neonatal nurse practitioners who saw a need for a sustainable model to assist infants recovering from Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome. The center provides a holistic approach to help babies with NAS by treating mother and baby together for substance withdrawal without an emotionally painful separation.  According to the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP), recent data show that nearly 80 babies across the United States are diagnosed every day with NAS.

"We are honored that Kipu has included us in their grant program," said Tara Sundem, co-founder of Hushabye Nursery. "Taking care of a newborn with NAS requires an investment of time and resources, we need to make an emotional connection with the patients and scientifically monitor their medical healing. By using the KipuEMR platform, we will have more time to connect and care for our patients and eliminate the manual and time-consuming operations that have overwhelmed our staff for so long."

"It is our privilege to assist Hushabye Nursery in their efforts to help the 'tiniest victims of the opioid crisis,'" said Jeffrey Fiorentino, CEO of KipuHealth. "It's a frightening fact that an infant is born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome – withdrawal symptoms – every 19 minutes. The work of this remarkable organization is truly heroic."

"We understand the challenges that face today's non-profit treatment facilities," said Fiorentino. "Financial constraints preclude many non-profits from acquiring the latest and most efficient data technology. With the power and efficiencies that we've designed into the KipuEMR, The Hushabye Nursery staff will spend less time struggling with paperwork and more time serving the needs of infants with NAS and their families."

KipuHealth is encouraged by the work of Tara Sundem and the Hushabye Nursery staff and is proud to be associated with such a dedicated, talented group of professionals who are determined to save new lives from the horror of infant withdrawal and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome.
