OnCore Resources

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

UMass implemented OnCore campus wide in the fall of 2017.  In 2018 OnCore was integrated with the UMass 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.
  • Has or requires registration on ClinicalTrials.gov (has a NCT number).
  • Uses the UMass Center for Clinical and Translational Science Clinical Research Center.
  • Uses the services of the UMass IRB or Investigational Drug Services.
  • Flags patients in Epic or uses Epic for recruitment.
  • Requires access to https://www.conqueringdiseases.org/ recruitment tools.
