Dragon® Medical One (DMO) For Mac
Updated: Jul 22, 2020
Q: Does Dragon® Medical One (DMO) Support Mac?
A: Yes and No (But Mostly Yes)
Officially Dragon® Medical One (DMO) currently only supports windows, however, there are ways to run it on a Mac. Don't worry, we will tell you how......
Essentially the only way to run DMO on Mac is to run Windows on your Mac computer or to run a virtualized version of Windows on your Mac computer.
You've got options:
Option 1: Use products such as "Parallels Desktop" or "VMware Fusion" to run a virtualized version of Windows on your Mac computer.
Versatility: Runs in a virtualized environment (a window on your Mac) and you can easily switch back and forth between using Windows/DMO and Mac
Simplicity: Easy to setup
Support: Product support available from solution manufacturer (Parallels or VMware)
Cost: These applications cost money to buy ("Parallels Desktop" and and "VMware Fusion" both have versions that start at $79.99 (Note: with either solution you may have to buy a Windows license if you do not already have one.)
Option 2: Use "Apple Boot Camp" (for Intel-based Macs) to boot into Windows.
Free: Apple does not charge for "Apple Boot Camp" (Note: you may still have to buy a Windows license if you do not have one)
No switching: Must boot into either Mac or Windows (switching between the two involves a reboot)
Requirements: Must have an Intel-based Mac (not an older ARM based processor)
Complexity: More complex setup required

Rest assured that since DMO runs mostly on 'the cloud' the speed and operation of DMO will be almost identical to running it natively on a Windows computer.
Once you have Windows running on your Mac we can help you install and configure your Dragon® Medical One software at no extra charge (all setup and training is included in with your implementation fee).
