About OnCore

The OnCore Enterprise Research application is a clinical trials management system and electronic data capture application. It provides a robust functionality to support the process here at UK HealthCare Academic Medical Center and the Markey Cancer Center.

OnCore was originally developed by Forte Research Systems, now Advarra, located in Madison, WI.

The purpose of OnCore is to provide aid with day-to-day functions, create a central repository for critical research data, biospecimen management, organization for quality assurance initiatives, and general clinical research administration.

We offer high quality, reliable, and statistically sound data from our clinical trials through the coordinated efforts of our Clinical Data Managers and Data analysts. The data management team are actively involved in all stages of the clinical trials from inception to completion, to ensure output of the best quality data. This includes: Electronic Case Report Form (eCRF) design, data cleaning and validation, discrepancy management, data extraction, database locking, and protocol management through the use of Good Clinical Data Management Practices.
