It doesn't evolve as fast you *THINK* it does for example our system
supports over 200 different doctor offices/practices and about 10% still
use Windows XP at 1024x768 and *REFUSE* to move to anything newer even
after being told that using anything older than Windows 8 is an automatic
HIPAA violation (DHS OCR [the office that oversees HIPAA enforcement] has
said anything that lacks active vendor support is an automatic
violation). About another 20% use Windows 7 and also refuse to upgrade.
The console for the monitors (rarely used directly by anyone except for us
the programmers) is 24x80 via a USB connector. So yes such screen sizes
are an issue for us.
