About Us

About Us

Cedaron was founded in 1990 by Dr. Malcolm Bond, Karen Bond and Gary Engle. We started with a NASA Small Business Innovation Research Grant and a vision to greatly improve specialty outcomes documentation. We combined our medical, technical and marketing experience to create leading-edge products for rehab, cardiology and workers compensation for global clients ranging from large healthcare institutions to solo provider practices.

Before Cedaron, the Bond’s founded a successful isokinetics equipment and software company which Inc. Magazine twice named as one of the fastest growing private companies in the United States.

"Nothing is more important than the people we serve."

Our philosophy from the start was to ensure the highest quality user experience with software, 360-degree total support and training and 100% customer satisfaction. While we’ve grown, we’ve kept a highly personalized and responsive approach to customer service. As the management team continually highlights:

While many big EHR companies claim to have Rehab Documentation, Cardiac Registries and Impairment Rating modules, Cedaron specializes in all these solutions. They are core to our business and we focus all our attention on these specific solutions so your group is more profitable, compliant and efficient. Cedaron’s work is done in collaboration — and with the endorsement of major societies and associations — like APTA, AOTA, ASHT, and the AMA. Cedaron is also a certified vendor of the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) and American Heart Association (AHA) for registries.

"You’ll be amazed at the functionality built into our products."
