For any of you running HIS 2009 in your environments, you should be aware that HIS 2009 has entered the Extended Support phase of its lifecycle as of July 8, 2014.

When a product is in Extended Support, it means that Microsoft Support still provides support, but new hotfixes will no longer be created for any new issues that are identified as bugs. In order to get new hotfixes, you would need to purchase an extended support contract.

One final Cumulative Update (CU7) will be released for HIS 2009. The exact release date is not finalized, but it is targeted for sometime in August. The CU7 update will include fixes for HIS 2009 that have been done since HIS 2009 CU6.

If you are using HIS 2009, you should start planning on a plan to move a newer version.
