Reduce IT burden. Increase security. Improve stability.

The 3M Cloud Platform provides a secure way to manage and maintain 3M coding and clinical documentation integrity (CDI) applications in real time, with significantly reduced maintenance windows and a seamless, straightforward implementation process. As a result, end users and clients have the advantage of an integrated information system that is secure and up to date, with minimal use of in-house IT or technical resources. This allows more time to focus on what matters most: Patients.

It's simple. Zero downtime. (DESCRIBED VIDEO) Anne Robinson, who is seated in front of a dark background, begins speaking and title text appears on screen over video: Anne Robinson, RHIA, CPC Vice president middle revenue cycle innovation Ensemble Health Partners (ANNE ROBINSON) It's a beautiful thing. We know exactly when we're going to have downtime because it's scheduled. Other benefits that we might see from using the cloud hosting platform obviously is the communication directly with 3M. It really cuts down on the amount of time wasted on an issue or enabling a product. If I want a product enabled, I simply put in a ticket to 3M and it's done. The other huge thing obviously is the integration time. It's much faster where we were able to have 3M, they're able to put in all of that 3M magic. We were able to cut the client IT resource need using cloud hosting significantly. Working within 3M 360 cloud hosting environment, we know we're going to have those updates from 3M online as soon as they're available. Again, there's no other unscheduled downtime with that and I have that extra security, that extra confidence that that system is updated and ready to go. It has all of the regulatory information always online and available when needed. (DESCRIBED VIDEO) 3M Science applied to life appears on screen and fades away.
