Our mission is to inspire engagement by enriching the patient experience

 

We are focused on improving the overall healthcare experience and personalizing patient engagement.

Imagine easily understanding the charges of your last doctor visit and getting real-time clarity on the complicated medical billing process. We believe this is one of the biggest revenue cycle challenges in healthcare.

At Cedar, we’re partnering with leading hospitals, health systems, and medical groups across the country to improve patient engagement and elevate the payment experience. This means bringing customer communications into the 21st century by marrying industry-leading technology and data science to create an easy, intuitive way for patients to pay their bills in a way that makes financial sense for them.
