General Manager @ Obasi vzw

Obasi vzw develops high-quality and secure software applications for the healthcare sector and mental healthcare in particular. The software automates and optimises various services: from medical and nursing services to financial modules.

Obasi vzw has existed for more than 40 years.  The non-profit organisation was founded from several psychiatric hospitals, which wanted to work together for their IT support and computerisation. Obasi still operates as a members' association according to the cost-sharing principle. 

The non-profit organisation has great added value for the sector, filling an increasingly important function.  The care file, patient administration, billing, pharmacy, etc. need to be supported with the right software. Thus, given the importance of Obasi's software, the organisation fulfils an important social function.

The non-profit organisation has its office/headquarters in Tienen.  Members are spread all over Belgium (mainly in Flanders, but some important Walloon hospitals are also members).  There are currently 44 full-time employees.
