OnCore Resources

The On-Line Collaborative Research Environment (OnCore) is a web-based clinical research management system developed by Advarra Technology Solutions. OnCore manages multiple aspects of clinical research, including protocols, participants and billing. 

UMass Chan implemented OnCore campus wide in the fall of 2017.  In 2018 OnCore was integrated with the UMass Memorial EMR system to increase patient safety, reduce duplicate data entry, enhance billing compliance and increase operational efficiency.

All clinical research that meets any of the following criteria must be entered into OnCore:

  • Has an external fund source.
  • Uses or purchases a service from UMass Memorial Health Care or any of its affiliates, including UMass Memorial Medical Group.
