Clinical Trial Management System

I am so excited to officially announce that MedStar Health (in collaboration with Georgetown University Medical Center) have reached a joint agreement with Forte Research Systems, Inc., for the implementation of its Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) software solution, OnCore®.

We began looking for a CTMS that would be able to support the needs of our institution, beginning in early 2015. Last May, 10 MHRI leaders were able to see the CTMS in place at two academic hospitals (read about the road trip here) to gain a better understanding of the systems in action. Over 100 associates from both MHRI and GUMC assisted us in choosing a system that will suit our needs.

The implementation of a single CTMS across both Georgetown and MedStar means that we will have a unified infrastructure for the conduct of clinical research which will be helpful for the research teams that do multi-site clinical studies. Specifically, the CTMS will provide greater efficiency around protocol management, billing, compliance and patient recruitment and outcomes.

The OnCore® CTMS suite will be implemented in our cardiology and oncology departments as pilot systems this year and will be integrated into all MHRI departments after we fully vet the pilot.

This agreement is a great step towards the future for MHRI and the clinical research we complete.

MHRI associates and investigators will be able to learn more about the CTMS at the 5th annual MedStar Research Symposium.
