CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY
Biscom Drives Epic Integration, Secure Fax Communications, and Business Continuity at Major Southeast Integrated Health Network
Industry-leading enterprise fax solution provides major integrated hospital network with secure, cost-eff ective methods of delivering documents via fax and email, bolsters disaster-recovery strategy.
By adding FAXCOM Anywhere cloud-based hosted fax services to their on-premise FAXCOM server, the health network is using Biscom’s Hybrid Fax Platform for disaster recovery and business continuity. Business continuity is essential in healthcare, where the flow of vital Protected Health Information (PHI) between providers, EMRs, labs, pharmacies, payers, and patients must remain secure and always on. Disruptions—whether malicious, due to human error, system overload or even forces of nature—can literally cost lives.
The health network has one FAXCOM fax server located at its primary data center. Biscom’s FAXCOM Anywhere enterprise cloud service is available as a back-up if the physical fax server or its associated phone line fails or if additional resources are ever needed for workflow peaks. If the Biscom FAXCOM fax server is unable to send outgoing faxes, the solution is confi gured to automatically send out faxes using the cloud-based Hosted Fax services.
Moreover, since the user interface for Biscom’s enterprise fax server and hosted cloud fax are identical, the operation is completely seamless to end-users and administrators. Biscom’s Hybrid Fax Platform Critical to Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans
