Kipu Acquires Avea, Combining the Best Clinical and Revenue Cycle Solutions for Behavioral Health

KIPU and Avea are joining forces so that addiction treatment centers no longer have to compromise when choosing their core systems.

CORAL GABLES, FL, September 29, 2021 – Kipu, the technology partner for mental health and addiction service providers, has acquired Avea Solutions, provider of revenue cycle management software that helps treatment centers streamline billing.

“Today, addiction treatment centers are siloed.  This separation results in rework, complexity and lower reimbursement,” said Paul Joiner, Kipu’s CEO.  “Integrating Kipu with Avea will allow referral teams, care teams and billing teams to work better together.”

The acquisition of Avea accelerates Kipu’s goal to empower caregivers and patients on every step of the recovery journey.  By expanding Kipu’s ecosystem of innovative applications and services, Avea helps treatment centers achieve the best outcomes across all levels of care, improving the individual, community, and public health.

“We’re pleased to be joining forces with Kipu,” said Ben Dittman, Avea’s Founder and Chairman.  “Together we will allow treatment centers to focus on helping patients take the next step toward recovery, instead of worrying if they can keep the lights on.”

“Avea joining Kipu is a real game changer for behavioral health centers and their billing partners”, said Rodney Zimmers, Managing Partner at Transparent Billing.  “Now our customers can get a complete view of their patients from one solution.”
