HASC is pleased to welcome Cedar as our newest Endorsed Business Partner. Based in New York City, Cedar is an enterprise platform designed to make the health care administrative and billing process clear and convenient for consumers. The company’s mission is to make health care “more affordable and accessible through our consumer-friendly platform that’s powered by data science, smart product design and personalization.”
The inspiration for Cedar came to one of the company’s co-founders, who personally experienced a confusing and frustrating journey through the health care system. It became clear that the system needed to change. Cedar aims to drive that change by engaging patients and improving satisfaction through advanced personalization and targeted outreach.
The platform directly integrates with electronic health records and billing systems — which leads to better outcomes for both providers and payers. Health care providers using Cedar see reduced no-shows and, on average, a 30% lift in collections; at the same time, patient satisfaction ratings remain at 88%.
Cedar currently partners with more than 55 of the nation’s leading health care organizations, including HASC member Keck Medicine of USC. “Our partnership with Cedar has been amazing,” says Rhona Fernandez, Keck’s senior IT director of administrative and revenue applications. “Patients have absolutely adopted the technology, which is leading to improved overall collections for our organization. Cedar’s continued efforts to optimize our results makes it stand out from the rest.”
