Cedar Gate Technologies Acquires Deerwalk
Combination creates the most comprehensive SaaS analytics platform in the healthcare industry with leading suite of value-based care enablement technologies
Greenwich, CT and Lexington, MA (December 16, 2020) - Cedar Gate Technologies (Cedar Gate), a leading value-based care performance management company, today announced its acquisition of Deerwalk, a powerful healthcare data management, analytics, and business intelligence company. Together, the companies create an unparalleled value-based care analytics and administration platform empowering all healthcare constituents to deliver the most cost-effective, highest-quality care.
The combined company’s actionable insights, intelligent reporting, and administrative solutions serve the needs of payers, providers, employers, and Administrative Services Organizations (ASO), including health plans, third party administrators (TPAs), brokers, consultants, and others.
“This acquisition solidifies Cedar Gate as the industry-leading value-based care platform company at a crucial time when healthcare is migrating away from fee-for-service to various forms of fee-for-value and risk-based alternatives,” said David B. Snow, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cedar Gate Technologies. “Deerwalk’s SaaS solutions and capabilities are highly complementary to our current platforms. Together, we enhance our ability to deliver end-to-end analytics, technologies, reporting, reconciliation and administrative services to any entity taking or managing healthcare risk.”
By acquiring Deerwalk, Cedar Gate expands its employer-based offerings with the ability to actively engage employers and ASOs as they manage rising healthcare costs. The combined suite of offerings improves the patient experience and delivers financial sustainability.
“Deerwalk now becomes part of Cedar Gate’s vision to provide end-to-end analytics to the healthcare industry and I am very excited about this next phase for Deerwalk’s employees and customers,” said Rudra Pandey, Founder and Executive Chairman of Deerwalk. “By joining Cedar Gate, we now have an excellent opportunity to enable the acceleration of value-based care across the country,” added Jeff Gasser, Deerwalk’s Chief Executive Officer. “By combining companies, our ability to create high-performing value-based systems across the entire spectrum of care is unmatched.”
Cedar Gate supports all facets of value-based care contract management including primary care attribution, retrospective & prospective bundles, primary care capitation, specialty capitation and global capitation. Using its cloud-based SaaS platform and administrative systems, Cedar Gate enables payers, providers and self-insured employers to reduce medical spend, re-capture revenues and create high-performance provider networks to improve clinical and financial performance.
