    Merge Healtcare sent an Urgent Medical Device Recall letter dated May 19, 2017, via email on May 24, 2017. The letter notifies the customer of the issue, informs them to be aware of the workaround, and that a fix is available for the issue in Merge OrthoPACS (or later). The notification instructs the customer to pass the information onto all other users, as well as any downstream customers if it was further distributed.

The response form asks, in part, if they are interested in accepting the fix. If they decline the fix, they are asked to provide the reason why.
