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 the effectiveness and efficiencies within their organizations. A dedicated OnBase user forum, the Healthcare VOGUE provides an arena for members to acquire immediate-action takeaways that 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 of contact with the Healthcare VOGUE members for education and enhancement requests. Typically, a SIG meets quarterly or biannually on a roundtable 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
