    December 12th Webinar: Panel Discussion for Supporting and Replacing Out-of-Support OS

    Register for the December 12th  Webinar: Panel Discussion for Supporting and Replacing Out-of-Support OS

    Date/Time: Thursday, December 12, 2019 / 12:00PM-1:00PM (EST)

    Panelists: David Soffer/WellSpan Health; Chad Waters/ECRI; Keith Whitby/Mayo Clinic

    Description: There is still no clear definition for legacy equipment nor is there a simple solution to the problem of supporting equipment with an out-of-support operating system. Replacement may simply not be an option due to the associated capital cost and even the latest equipment may present similar challenges. Supporting older equipment can quickly become problematic and practical steps are required to manage this burden, after all, one of the biggest examples with Windows 7 end-of-support is fast approaching. As an industry we need to discuss this issue and come up with actionable solutions for HTM.
