The OnCore clinical trial management system (CTMS) helps research teams and administrative staff track and manage a trial throughout its life cycle, while providing institutional leaders with critical reporting and analytics.

Why OnCore?

OnCore benefits PIs, research teams, departments, administrators, and staff members involved in financial and regulatory functions. OnCore helps these individuals: 

  • Effectively manage studies – Gives research staff a single place for managing protocols and participants, and accessing up-to-date information.
  • Manage financials – Price studies, track budgets and earned revenue, and generate financial management reports.
  • Streamline operations – Lower the cost of managing trials within individual units via a single system that works seamlessly across the enterprise and reduces the need for disparate data environments and software infrastructures.
  • Simplify data management – Collect, house, and track protocol, study, administrative, and financial data. View a comparison of OnCore and REDCap.

  • Enhance collaboration – Seamlessly coordinate studies across teams, units, and sites. OnCore supports academic medical centers, cancer centers, and health care systems across the country.
