Solutions Serving the Healthcare Industry

Cedar Interactive has worked with hospitals, medical device providers, pharmaceutical companies, and healthcare associations to provide top quality training. Healthcare professionals need to be well-trained so they can work in an accurate and efficient manner. Using our cognitive science-based approach, healthcare workers are instructed quickly and effectively, and are able to perform their job tasks immediately after training. Other work includes teaching nurses to use glucose monitoring equipment, helping account managers sell new pharmaceuticals, and teaching customer service reps to handle inbound calls on disease states.
