Windows Virtual Desktop

Windows Virtual Desktop offers a new way for remote workers to access key Michigan Medicine online resources – from anywhere, on any device.

Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) provides authorized users with access to a streamlined set of tools and services (including MiChart), available using any device, any browser, and without the need for VPN. It is intended for those who don’t have a Michigan Medicine-supplied “Core” device available for remote work, and for whom Remote Desktop Access is not a practical alternative. (Compare options)

Limitations:

  • Windows Virtual Desktop does not currently support audio or video conferencing – so applications that require them are not compatible, including:

    • MiChart with Video (Warp Drive)
    • Jabber
    • Aspect

Additional Updates and Features Coming Soon!

  • More features and capabilities will be added frequently, so users are encouraged to visit the Windows Virtual Desktop Getting Started Guide for complete user-support documentation, including product updates.

Please note: To help preserve bandwidth/availability for those who need it most, access to Windows Virtual Desktop is being limited to those who do not have a Michigan Medicine-supplied Core device (desktop or laptop) available for remote work, and for whom Remote Desktop Access is not a practical alternative.
