OnCore Enterprise Implementation

The Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) has extended the OnCore Enterprise Research system, or OnCore, to non-oncology clinical trials at WUSM. Details about the timeline and process are provided below.


The OnCore Clinical Trials Management System (CTMS) has been used at Washington University since 2015 by research teams affiliated with the Siteman Cancer Center.  In 2018, use of the OnCore system expanded to include financials functionality to support industry-sponsor invoicing. Additionally, OnCore was integrated with Epic to automate subject enrollment and support research billing compliance. The success of these efforts established a foundation for expanding OnCore to the greater Washington University clinical research community. 

Expansion of OnCore Enterprise-Wide

Project Goals

Expanding OnCore to the enterprise community will provide study teams with tools to manage their day-to-day operations. It offers an infrastructure to promote consistency and efficiency for the clinical, financial, and regulatory aspects of clinical research. This in turn will allow study teams to focus on our core mission: to advance new breakthroughs for the benefit of patients.

How and When

The OnCore application rolled-out across the institution in “Sprints” (groups of departments shown below) with all departments live in 2021.
