On July 14, 2015, Windows Server 2003 reaches end of life (EOL). As of this date, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003, and any servers running Windows Server 2003 after this date will become a massive security risk.
In a new Q&A with Becker's ASC Review, PriorityOne Group President and CEO Nelson Gomes discusses what the Windows Server 2003 EOL means for ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). He addresses the following questions:
- What is Microsoft Windows Server 2003?
- What are the dangers of ASCs continuing to use Windows Server 2003?
- Are there still dangers of using machines with Windows Server 2003 if they are not storing protected health information and important financial information?
- What should an ASC do if it is still using machines with Windows Server 2003? What options are available?
- How much time does it take to migrate from Windows Server 2003?
