Action Computerized Medical Systems Inc sent a "CUSTOMER ADVISORY" letter dated March 2008 to all affected customers. The letter describes the product, the problem and the actions to be taken. The firm provided a workaround for customers that states "Alternatively the plan can be imported directly into XIO". A copy of the Advisory was shipped with software within the affected range to those requesting a software upgrade. The issue was resolved in Focal Release 4.40.00 introduced in June 2008. The firm will send out a User Notice to all sites still running affected software to remind them that the issue resolution is available. For further questions, please call (403) 830-8023.
