Best Practices For Migrating Healthcare Organizations From Windows XP To Windows 7

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The migration of an entire health enterprise from a highly-entrenched Windows XP to Windows 7 can pose a challenge, but the process can be much easier with a well-planned approach. Windows XP was designed before modern security threats. It is becoming less and less compatible with modern hardware and getting harder and harder to support. Fortunately, in terms of user satisfaction, increased productivity, reliability, security and even return on investment, the results will be more than worth the effort.

This white paper identifies some of the issues you can expect to face, and follows up with some best practice recommendations for a smooth transition. As the United States moves more and more towards electronic health records management on a nationwide scale, having better and more modern IT systems, from the desktop all the way to the data center, will be key in terms of being prepared, keeping costs down, being more responsive to rapidly changing regulation, and keeping your staff focused on providing the best patient care possible.

Migrating from an old OS environment takes a lot of time and planning, but the results are well worth it. From increased productivity to better user satisfaction, a migration to Windows 7 will empower your entire organization, while also substantially improving security.
