The On-line Collaborative Research Environment (OnCore) is a comprehensive web-based clinical research management system (CRMS) that seamlessly integrates all of the components of research activity across the research enterprise.

OnCore is Augusta University’s CRMS of record. OnCore provides an informatics infrastructure for managing research, including the full range of operational components:

  • Clinical trial lifecycle management
  • Study participant and safety management
  • Electronic data capture
  • Scientific Review Committee management
  • Reporting
  • Biospecimen management
  • Sponsor billing compliance
  • Study budget management
  • Patient registries
  • Integration with other enterprise-wide systems

OnCore is designed to lessen the burden on investigators and research staff, so that conducting research is organized and efficient. It is not limited to administrative tasks, however. OnCore has the capability to capture and store research data that can be exported for additional analyses and reporting.
