Manage your studies from start to finish, with ease.

To continue to improve the efficiency and quality of clinical trials conducted at the University, NACTRC has implemented the OnCore clinical trial management system (CTMS). This new system supports clinical research teams and allows for enhanced study management, robust and flexible reporting, participant tracking and the management of study finances—all in one place.

What is OnCore?

The OnCore CTMS is a secure web-based system that centralizes aspects of clinical trial administration. Used at both the institutional and the individual investigator/study team level, the system acts as a single platform to track subject progress, study-related documents, study calendars and budget information for past and current research. 

Best of all, OnCore can be used in any way that adds value to your study team. From staying on top of participant scheduling to managing research staff, OnCore helps streamline the administrative and operational aspects of trials so you can focus on what matters most—your research.


Benefits of a CTMS by Role:

This is a single place for the whole team to track participants, visits, and studies.

Price-out studies, build budgets, generate invoices, reconcile payments, and run financial reports.

Streamline operations, define workflows, assign staff, track study progress, and demonstrate investigator oversight.

Get a full print out of expected study visits and procedures.

Generate reports at a study, research group, department, or institutional level.

Document visits and findings directly in the audit and monitoring console.

Benefits by Study Activity:

Use the charge master and draft budgets to price out studies for sponsor budget negotiations.


Use task lists to track submissions, assign staff to study tasks, use the protocol calendar to anticipate staff and resource needs, link your protocols to ethics applications.

Enrol participants on study, set up study specific schedules of events, project participants’ visit dates and track their progress, assign upcoming tasks to study personnel and track completion, easily see what needs to happen next.

Create institutionally customized invoices based on study milestones and visits/procedures completed, then reconcile received payments. Use the vendor payables module to track payments that you owe to others.

Document modifications and associated approvals. Use ‘reconsent required’ to identify which participants need to be reconsented.
