What is Cloud 9? Welcome to Caring Voice Coalition’s new secure portal, Cloud 9. Here you, the patient, will find all of your CVC-related information available at the click of a button. Equate this page to online banking. If you want to know how much money is in your checking account, you could call a bank, or you could simply log in online, and check within seconds. That’s Cloud 9. Instead of having to get in touch with your case manager, you can view the information that you provide to CVC right here. On the portal, you can: • Apply for or renew financial assistance • Update personal information, (ex. address, insurance, email address, etc.) • Communicate with your CVC care team securely via Cloud 9’s secure messaging center.
“More and more people are in the electronic world, so we want to make it easier for them to communicate with us.” Michael Dermer, CVC’s Systems Architect
CVC has and will always put our patients first. And we feel that Cloud 9 is a large step to making the quality of the care you receive even simpler. Visit us at www.caringvoice.org/2011/09/apply-for-help.
