OnCore is an Online Collaborative Research Environment supporting Clinical Trial Management at UMass Chan. OnCore manages multiple aspects of clinical research, including protocols, participants, and billing, and currently supports over 300 actively accruing Clinical Trials at UMass Chan.  

Developed by Advarra Technology Solutions, OnCore was implemented campus-wide in 2017. In 2018, OnCore was integrated with the UMass Memorial Medical Center’s EMR system Epic, and in February of 2023, OnCore was integrated with UMass Chan’s eIRB.

Some essential benefits realized using OnCore have been increased patient safety, billing compliance, and operational efficiency.
