Why is Dragon Medical One taking so long to initiate?

Problem: After opening a Connect Care clinical information system (CIS) Hyperspace session, then clicking on the top left button bar item to launch Dragon Medical One (DMO), the DMO loading screen (see image) gets stuck for 2 minutes or more with a spinning circle.

Cause: A system configuration change was made on Sept 19 that appears to have caused problems where DMO cannot find specific dictation hardware attached to the computer where it loads. Computers that have that hardware work well but all other computers have a painfully slow DMO logon.

Solution: This is a system configuration error. It is being worked on, with expectation of normal DMO load times later this week.
