OnCore Information

Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC) implemented the OnCore® Clinical Trials Management System (CTMS) in 2012. The enterprise research system manages many components of clinical trials research activity across the consortium, including clinical, regulatory, financial, and administrative tasks. The system also shares subject enrollment information and billing grids with Epic, the electronic health record (EHR) utilized by Partners institutions. This integration with Epic and other systems eliminates duplicate data entry and improves data integrity.

OnCore enables investigators, researchers and staff to conduct research in an easily organized and efficient manner. In addition to managing administrative tasks, OnCore collects and stores research data for future analysis and reporting.
