Former Epic CFO Anita Pramoda has joined the board of directors at Kipu, an EHR vendor that specializes in health IT for substance abuse and behavioral health centers.

Pramoda helped lead a period of substantial domestic market growth at Epic, supporting its launch into mobile health IT services and its expansion into the governmental and international markets.

Pramoda noted that she is excited to join the board of an EHR vendor that aims to address the specific needs of behavioral health and substance abuse centers.

"This is a company targeting an underserved area within healthcare, supporting patients as they heal from addiction and other harmful behaviors – which have been at an all-time high during the pandemic,” Pramoda said in a press release.

“Behavioral health and substance abuse treatment are nuanced, heavily regulated, and complex areas within healthcare,” she continued. “Kipu's foundational strength is its absolute focus on creating a purpose-built EMR solution and suite of applications singularly focused on this market.”

Prior to her tenure at Epic, Pramoda served on the boards of leading health IT companies like Allscripts, Health Catalyst, Press Ganey, and HealthEdge. She is also founder and CEO of Owned Outcomes (O2), a software company that aims to help participating organizations pursue value-based care models, such as bundled payments.

Kipu's CEO, Paul Joiner, noted that Pramoda’s addition to the board of directors is set to help the vendor grow its presence across the specialty EHR sector.   

“We push ourselves to innovate and integrate our technology platform to enable world-class performance for our customers and their patients. With her deep experience advising growth technology companies, Anita is ideally suited to support us in this task," commented Kipu's CEO, Paul Joiner.
