Lytec System Requirements

Attention Windows XP Users!

Microsoft will be ending support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014. This means that no further updates, patches, or security fixes for Windows XP will be released after this date.
That means that Windows XP will no longer be HIPAA compliant after that date. MPM recommends that all clients still using Windows XP computers begin the process of upgrading their hardware NOW. MPM recommends Windows 7 Professional.
While Windows XP will be supported by McKesson with the release of 2014 Practice Management, Lytec MD will NOT be supported on Windows XP or Windows Server 2003.
