Opportunities for customer engagement


The Healthcare Vertical OnBase Group of User Experts (VOGUE) brings members of the healthcare industry together to share ideas, create valuable dialogue and provide feedback about utilizing technology to increase organizational effectiveness and efficiency.

The VOGUE also supports Special Interest Groups (SIGs) dedicated to specific topics and areas.  These groups are the focal point for education and enhancement requests. Typically, a SIG meets quarterly or biannually on a conference call to share stories, experiences, or learn what's new.

Our current SIG groups are: 

  • Administrative Business
