Most practice management software solutions such as Open Dental, Dentrix, Datacon and Eaglesoft do not specifically require a Server Operating System. In fact, a Server OS is rarely specified as a requirement for any software solution. For hosting a HIPAA compliant and secure business network, however, a Server OS is required. A simple workstation, for example, does not have the network management protocols to enforce employee password compliance, encrypted network communications, and prospective logging of network activity which is required by HIPAA. A server OS is designed to implement and enforce the network requirements for data security.
