DH100 recognizes the most exciting and innovative digital health startups in New York
Cedar, an end-to-end healthcare financial engagement platform, today announced that it has been named to the 2024 New York Digital Health 100 (DH100), a recognition that highlights the most exciting and innovative startups in New York. Digital Health New York (DHNY) publishes the annual list in conjunction with the New York Healthcare Innovation Report, which takes an in-depth look at the investment trends, opportunities and challenges in the digital health sector.
“100 million Americans struggle with medical debt, piling on stress when they’re at their most vulnerable. That’s why our mission is to make healthcare more affordable and accessible,” said Florian Otto, CEO and Co-founder of Cedar. “We’re honored to be recognized for the fourth time by DHNY, as this demonstrates the positive impact that our innovative solutions are making on the lives of patients—both in the New York area and across the country.”
Founded in 2016, Cedar builds modern, consumer-first technology that empowers patients to easily and affordably pursue the care they need. In 2023, the company unveiled a record number of successful product offerings, strategic initiatives and partnerships to ease the burden of healthcare bills for patients across the United States, including the new Affordability Navigator, the healthcare industry’s first integrated suite of financial assistance offerings for patients.
“2024 marks the fifth year of the New York Digital Health 100 and in that time, the digital health ecosystem in New York has significantly grown and evolved,” said Bunny Ellerin, co-founder and CEO, DHNY. “We are proud to recognize these exceptional organizations and commend them for their ongoing commitment to innovation, transformation and the role they play in driving healthcare forward.”

To compile the DH100, we invited companies to complete an in-depth application with both quantitative and qualitative measures to help us to get to know the company better. We also used our dynamic database of digital health companies in the region to round out the consideration set. A company qualified for consideration if it maintained headquarters or employed at least 10 people in the New York region. Companies that were public or non-profit; founded before 2014; or had an exit were excluded. We evaluated companies on a number of factors, including but not limited to: strength of application, leadership, number of employees, funding (if known), revenue (if known), market fit, differentiated offerings, and community engagement.
