  • Action
    SCC Soft Computer issued a Risk-to-Health notification with Client Notification Verbiage to the affected client using SCC Soft Computer's proprietary Task Management System on March 11, 2007. SCC recommended turning off the autocorrect and autoformatting functions in MS Word if custom configuration parses text to an ASCII file (HIS) for the Result Reporting interface.

Client was asked to acknowledge receipt of the task and grant permission to load the required software correction.
