Cedar Gate is uniquely suited to serve as a shared point of contact and communication among healthcare organizations with 30+ years in bundled payment arrangements. Our platform identifies and develops bundle opportunities to reduce spend and improve quality of care.

Whether you’d prefer a complete, end-to-end outsourced solution or would rather choose from a variety of services to complement your current capabilities, we can help.

Get Started

The Bundles Process Has Never Been Easier


Target Population

Use our proprietary platform to ingest your data and easily create customized bundle definitions that will then model a baseline episode experience. During this process our experts conduct an opportunity analysis to prioritize contracting for high-performers and calculate pricing while identifying potential quality targets. 


Activate Market

During this phase we work with your organization to align a robust provider network, configure contract terms by line of business and episode, and develop provider-facing documents and baseline reports. Education will be top of mind for implementation and we have all the tools to make this a seamless process. 


Administer Effectively

Our proprietary claims engine consolidates fees into a single bundled claim, then automatically unbundles and distributes payments to providers downstream while managing the risk pool. We also offer services including provider credentialing, network development, provider engagement, payer/provider contracting, patient experience and engagement, and bundled program marketing and expansion.



Monitor and Optimize Performance

Monitoring each bundle program and optimizing it for sustainable performance using actionable analytics is key. We refresh data feed quarterly and perform a extensive analysis to determine ROI and progress. Employer and provider self-service portals with customizable reporting allow drill-down performance detail. 


Achieve CMS Goals

Cedar Gate models all 32 BPCI-A bundles and utilizes CMS claims data attributed to our clients to analyze and determine which bundles have the best opportunities, relative to the CMS targets, which providers in our client’s system can best hit those targets, and perform review and reconciliation of financial performance across CMS programs.


Actionable Insights & Workflows

Effectively create predefined and custom workflows or “plays” to drive improvements in financial, operational, and clinical performance. Use your pricing, claims, and utilization data to reveal the projected value and potential timetable of a play before you begin. Once you execute a play, then monitor, track, and display performance data, while receiving updated action items to improve performance throughout the year—not just at year-end. 




Centers of Excellence (COE) Programs

Workforce expectations are on a collision course with economic reality as cost-sharing increases have outpaced employees’ abilities to pay. In order to recruit and retain talent, employers must provide employees with access to excellent care while also managing the cost of providing that care.

Cedar Gate offers an end-to-end solution for Center of Excellence programs that are designed for specialized care and treatment services. When the program is paired with prospective bundles, it allows a single payment to be disbursed to all providers involved. Depending on your specific benefits plan structure, our staff can help determine the best administrative route and provide technology to handle direct-to-employer invoicing or payer involvement.
