Posted by Paul Neefjes on Oct 8, 2015 9:02:00 AM


With 12.000 clients Vincent van Gogh is the largest provider of mental healthcare in the Dutch provinces of Noord- and Midden Limburg and Brabant. People with psychological, psychiatric and addiction problems are treated here.

To manage mail, dossiers and documents Vincent van Gogh uses OpenIMS. OpenSesame ICT and iBabs  created a standard connection between  OpenIMS Document Management Systeem and iBabs, so coworkers are now able to conduct paperless meetings. 

Connection between DMS and iBabs

For Vincent van Gogh this is a great step towards an optimum benefit of the DMS. Documents used during a meeting are often created and managed in a DMS. And when iBabs and DMS are connected, clients will enjoy better usability.  And that is exactly the added value of iBabs.
