Over $1 billion is said to be lost annually by physicians as a result of inefficient and disjointed healthcare billing practices. The subsequently low patient satisfaction rates lead to poorer care, and real losses for providers who see patients switching away from their plans. Cedar looks to remedy this long-time problem set with a selection of consumer-facing services which streamline billing, insurance, and healthcare processes.
Companies like Cedar are in high demand, and serve a promisingly large and hungry market. Future healthcare billing concerns a huge percentage of US adults, and optimizing patient satisfaction is of increasing concern in a competitive sector for healthcare providers. Like other companies with a tech-forward focus, Cedar has been able to capitalize on an industry increasingly expanding towards digital healthcare solutions.
After acquiring competing patient finance streamlining service OODA Health in 2021, Cedar has gone on to capture even more success. The company has netted substantial funds on top of the launch of its Payer Intelligence Layer, which allows it to integrate data from insurers and providers to create a single source of information. It was also endorsed by the Montana Hospital Association's shared services division MHA Ventures (MHAV), to be listed as its only preferred patient financial engagement technology, all boding well for its performance into the future.
