The California-Based Company and Leading National Hospital System Will Use OpenText RightFax Connect for Cloud and Off-Cloud Messaging.

Waterloo, ON /PRNewswire/ - OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX,TSX: OTEX), the global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced Prime Healthcare, one of the nation's leading hospital systems, has chosen to add OpenText™ RightFax™ Connect to their existing OpenText™ RightFax™ implementation, providing a complete on-cloud and off-cloud hybrid fax solution.

Headquartered in Ontario, California, Prime Healthcare and the not-for-profit Prime Healthcare Foundation (Prime) employ nearly 40,000 people. Prime Healthcare owns and operates 45 acute care hospitals in 14 states. Prime Healthcare and its hospitals have been recognized among the "100 Top Hospitals" in the nation 42 times and among the "15 Top Health Systems" three times.

"A fast and secure patient information exchange is fundamental to generating successful outcomes for our hospitals, doctors, and patients," said Will Conaway, Chief Information Officer at Prime Healthcare. "We have extensive fax traffic per month, and OpenText has proven that it can operate on our large scale. RightFax Connect has simplified our existing RightFax deployment, and it has allowed Prime Healthcare to take advantage of the flexibility and scalability of the cloud, which has addressed the time and costs associated with fax telephony."

RightFax Connect simplifies a RightFax fax server deployment saving time and cost by eliminating the most complex part of a typical fax deployment (telephony). With RightFax Connect, OpenText creates an end-to-end, hybrid fax solutions with cloud-based fax delivery and automatic scaling for large volumes, while maintaining the same RightFax user experience and even existing fax numbers. Customers also free IT resources from time-consuming management of telephony and capacity planning.

"As the leading fax solution provider in healthcare, we are excited to expand our working relationship with Prime Healthcare," said Stephen Ludlow, vice president of product marketing at OpenText. "RightFax Connect provides the only end-to-end, hybrid solution for RightFax. Customers like Prime Healthcare who require the simplicity, security and scalability a hybrid faxing solutions turn to RightFax Connect, the proven cloud-based communication for RightFax fax servers."

Providers maintain control over fax data and can benefit from existing RightFax integrations with email and other back-end systems to preserve the user experience.

"In addition to simplicity, efficiency, and savings, hybrid faxing with RightFax Connect's content is encrypted at rest and in transit," Conaway continues. "As a premier national health system, the security of our patient health information is of paramount concern. OpenText helps reduce compliance risks."
