When Windows 10 was first released, we had asked our clients to refrain from upgrading to this new Windows Operating System as most EMR vendors were not compatible with the new Windows OS release.
Now, a year later, most EMR software are compatible with Windows 10 as they have made the necessary adjustments adjustments for their software to operate in the new WIndows OS environment.
