Cedar - Summit Health

Summit Health


Summit Health transforms the patient billing experience with Cedar

In 2019, Summit Medical Group merged with CityMD to form Summit Health. Summit Health is now one of the largest medical groups in the country, with 2.5k+ providers and 340+ locations.

When Lankford Wade joined the Summit Health team as CFO in 2020, he quickly identified the need to transform the way Summit Health engaged with their patients. Lankford believed Cedar Pay was the best solution in the market, as the platform delivered the unique combination of increased financial results and an improved patient experience.

The results speak for themselves. Watch the video to hear how Cedar dramatically boosted the patient payment rate by 37% (and growing!), while also elevating the patient journey. Darshana, a Summit Health patient, also shares her personal healthcare experience, highlighting that the billing platform has allowed her to focus on her what really matters: her health and recovery.

Lankford Wade | Chief Financial Officer, Summit Health

I appreciated how easy it was to just pay my bills and keep track of everything and actually get a chance to focus on my recovery instead of the day-to-day tasks of paying a medical bill.
