Site Excellence Awards Clinical Research OperationsForte Research Systems selected the CCTS Partner Network Hub as the Spring 2018 Top Performer for OnCore Organizations. Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey won Most Improved. Forte announced the recipients at its Onsemble Conference in late March 2018.

The Site Benchmark awards are presented twice a year to sites that achieve the highest overall score when compared to an anonymized aggregate of peer organizations in Forte’s Site Benchmarks collaborative community. The overall score is determined by combining metrics across all categories and comparing an organization’s percentile rankings to similar organizations. Metric categories include several key steps in study start up, such as cycle times for IRB approval and open to accrual of first patient, percent target enrollment met, and SAE reporting timelines.

Our congratulations to the UAB OnCore implementation team for their masterful launch and superb collaboration, which set the stage for this award.
