Three facilities — Moses Taylor Hospital (Scranton, Pa.), Appalachian Regional Healthcare System (Boone, N.C.) and Southeast Alabama Medical Center (Dothan, Ala.) — have deployed Mountain View, Calif.-based PostPath’s server and Web mail.

The solution combines native Outlook and mobile device support and offers webmail to all staff, offering a drop-in alternative to Microsoft Exchange that the company says can reduce overall infrastructure costs.

PostPath Server is network-protocol interoperable with the Exchange ecosystem including Outlook, Blackberry, Active Directory, and ActiveSync.
