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. A dedicated OnBase user forum, the Healthcare VOGUE provides an arena for immediate-action takeaways to increase your operational knowledge and add value to your organization.

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
  • Health Information Management (HIM)
  • Epic
  • Clinical/Diagnostic
  • Meditech
  • Infor Lawson
  • Allscripts SCM
