Cedar, an enterprise healthcare engagement platform that improves the end-to-end consumer financial journey, has been awarded a national group purchasing agreement for Patient Engagement with Premier, Inc. Effective September 2022, the new agreement allows Premier members, at their discretion, to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by Premier for Cedar’s patient financial engagement solutions Cedar Pre and Cedar Pay.
“The Cedar team is thrilled to join Premier’s ecosystem. This relationship will enable us to broaden our reach with health systems and patients across the country, expanding the impact of the consumer-grade financial experience our solutions offer,” said Florian Otto, CEO and Co-founder of Cedar.
Cedar Pre, Cedar’s pre-visit solution, offers a personalized, concierge experience for consumers preparing for care, facilitating financial coordination, care navigation and patient intake. Cedar Pay, Cedar’s post-visit billing and payment solution, combines health plan information with patient billing to deliver a simpler, more optimized consumer financial experience. Both Cedar Pre and Cedar Pay make up the Cedar Suite, an end-to-end solution that brings together payer data and provider communications into one platform. The Cedar Suite delivers a consistent and unified experience covering all patient touch points—from appointment confirmation and registration pre-service all the way to final payment post-service.
