If Your Practice is on a Version of Windows Server 2016 or Older,You Will Not Be Able to Use eRX Starting on February 26th
We wanted to make you aware of an upcoming DoseSpot update which will impact your provider’s ability to e-prescribe medications. DoseSpot, our eRX credentialing partner, is slated to release an update on February 26, 2023.
This update will modernize the encryption (or Ciphers) EMR’s, such as eIVF, use to securely connect and exchange messages with the DoseSpot platform. These more secure ciphers are only available on Windows Server 2016 and above AND Windows 10 and above.
Note that versions of Windows Server older than 2016 are either already retired or will soon be retired in 2023. Retired versions of Windows Server are vulnerable to cyber-attacks and compliance risks. It is therefore essential and mandatory that our customers upgrade BOTH Server and Desktop OS versions to at least Windows Server 2016 or greater and Windows 10 or greater.
With the DoseSpot release date quickly approaching, we strongly encourage your practice upgrade your hardware and/or Windows server as soon as possible.
