Windows XP and HIPAA / HITECH compliance
Transition to more recent operating systems due as Microsoft ends support for XP in April 2014
Miami, August 27, 2013
- Access IT Solutions calls your attention to the fact that beginning April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longe r provide extended support for Windows XP.
Microsoft will not release any security patches, hotfixes or updates for their popular operating system from that date on. Windows XP will thus become non-compliant with HIPAA / HITECH standards, and healthcare providers using it could be subject to liabilities for non-compliance.
Windows XP may be the OS not only in your clinical staff workstations, but also in CT machines and other medical devices.
As your preferred vendor, Access IT Solutions is scheduling client transitions to more recent HIPAA / HITECH-compliant operating systems before the April 8, 2014 deadline.
