Healthcare Advisory Council

Healthcare industry leaders help shape our healthcare solutions

How do we make sure our healthcare solutions address the industry’s challenges?

By going to the source.

We engage with our Healthcare Vertical OnBase Group of User Experts (VOGUE) frequently. And, in addition to listening to what our customers have to say about our solutions – read more about that below – Hyland’s three advisory councils meet regularly with our leadership and development teams. Each comprising highly respected healthcare leaders, these Physician, CIO and Nursing Advisory Councils help drive innovative enhancements to ensure our solutions focus on improving patient care while further streamlining healthcare processes.

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
