All Department of Medicine divisions now live in OnCore

Written by 

Clinical trials from the final UAB Department of Medicine (DOM) divisions, listed below, recently went live in OnCore, marking the successful completion of another major phase of the implementation plan. Three other DOM divisions—Endocrinology, Cardiology, and Infectious Diseases—joined CCTS and the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center as users of the OnCore clinical trials management system (CTMS) in December 2017. OnCore is replacing the older, and no longer supported, SiteMinder system.

Training and Team Work

Training for the first "wave" of end users began Oct. 18 and ran through Dec. 15, 2017. OnCore training resumed on Jan. 2, 2018. More than 235 attendees have participated in the OnCore trainings, including focused sessions on its protocol, calendar, and subject management features. For information on how to register for upcoming OnCore classes, contact Mikela Knox (phone: 205-975-2758). Wave 2 of the OnCore rollout is on track for an April 23 go-live, when 80 percent or more of trials with billables will be captured.

Join the CCTS in congratulating the OnCore team—including Naseem Anjum, Emily Bruer, Amy Cleverdon, Meredith Fitz-Gerald, Geoff Gordon, Deanne Guthrie, Shelly Hall, Trafina Jhadav, Dr. Cindy Joiner, Courtney Jordan, Mikela Knox, Steve Lloyd, Mark Marchant, Dawn Matthews, Michael McEwan, John Sandefur, Ashley Specht, Amanda Unrue, Nicky Welch, and Lisa Williams—for another masterful launch that is the result of superb collaboration. We are proud of the hard work and dedication of the OnCore implementation team. Embracing this next-generation CTMS will enable us to improve the efficiency, compliance, and cost-effectiveness of our clinical trials.
