If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911 or seek care at an emergency room.
As announced in early 2016, MedStar Health and Georgetown University are collaborating to implement OnCore, an enterprise-wide Clinical Trials Management System (CTMS). Well, we are pleased to share with you that OnCore is now fully active and has started to be used for select clinical trials.
OnCore will serve as a workflow manager and repository of all clinical research administrative and management activities. This new system represents a significant investment in our clinical research infrastructure and will greatly enhance and standardize our clinical trial management activities. In addition, OnCore will provide real-time analytics and reporting capabilities about our research activity across the system.
What does this mean for MHRI associates? OnCore will be introduced in a phased roll-out approach to allow users more time to learn and adapt to the new system. Associates who are clinical research coordinators, regulatory coordinators, and budget/coverage analysts should expect to see communications regarding future user training sessions, as you are the primary users of OnCore.
We encourage all associates to support one another during this transition period, especially those colleagues who are most affected. Associates can find more information on StarPort, including documentation, training tools, and dates for training. If you have any questions, please contact Research@MedStar.net.
