We’re writing to share critical information about your practice’s ongoing compliance with HIPAA requirements for practices still using Windows 2012 and 2012 R2.
To summarize, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 will end on October 10, 2023. The process of acquiring new equipment, updating your system, transferring data, and conducting thorough testing can take up to 6-8 weeks. If you desire to schedule some installation work during a period when the practice is closed, it may take even longer.
I Need To Upgrade…What Can I Do?
To ensure that your practice continues operating without interruption and remains in compliance with HIPAA, we strongly recommend scheduling the replacement or upgrade of any workstations running on Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2 no later than August 2023.
If you’ve already upgraded from Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2, you will not be affected by Microsoft ending support for these operating systems. If you’re unsure about the operating system installed on your workstations, schedule a consult with our team to see what your upgrade options are TODAY! We’re here to help you navigate this transition smoothly.
