Clinical Management Services

Clinical Management Services supports the CCTR’s mission by providing technical support and infrastructure for Clinical Research data, metrics, and documents for the VCU Clinical Research community. Our focus includes patient safety, study enrollment, billing compliance, and cost recovery.

OnCore –Clinical Research Management System

OnCore® is a fully-featured Clinical Research Management System (Forte Research Systems®, Madison, WI) used by VCU to organize data from IRB approved clinical research studies into a single database administered by the CCTR. Data found in OnCore includes study information and documents, participant data, research calendars, financial tracking and audit/monitoring.

Research Participant data is shared with VCU Health Systems through an integration with the EMR, Cerner.

An introduction to OnCore, its implementation plan and training materials can be found on the OnCore Wiki.

StudyFinder – Patient Recruitment Tool

StudyFinder is a user friendly website that lists clinical trials currently enrolling participants at VCU. Via this website, potential research participants can search for a study, view eligibility criteria, and contact the study team for more information. The information in StudyFinder is pulled from details entered by Investigators in clinicaltrials.gov.

StudyFinder was originally developed by the University of Minnesota. We are in the process of providing information about other enrolling Clinical Research studies from OnCore through StudyFinder.
