As of January 14, 2020, Microsoft no longer provides security updates or support for PCs with the Windows 7 operating system.
The GPSC's Doctors Technology Office (DTO) has produced resources to help guide clinics during this transition:
- Tech Bulletin - Microsoft to End Windows 7 Support Bulletin in Jan 2020, and
- Microsoft Windows 10 Upgrade Checklist.
DTO is available to provide additional guidance to clinics and to discuss best practices and next steps. It is also strongly recommended that clinics work directly with their local IT support to identify any hardware or software requirements needed to support this critical transition off of Windows 7, or any older Windows operating systems such as Windows XP.
