The OCR is leading a URMC-wide initiative to streamline the administrative work that happens on the back end of clinical trials. The initiative, called Embark, will help research teams spend more time with study participants and patients. As part of the initiative, URMC is rolling out the OnCore clinical trial management system and supporting software.

Metrics & Feasibility
The OCR is also in the process of developing a service line to help clinical research teams assess the feasibility of proposed clinical studies and develop meaningful metrics to help guide how they manage their clinical studies. This service line will also help teams navigate the hurdles and pitfalls of study start up and will provide enterprise-wide reports to help teams benchmark their success or progress.
The OCR will also help manage clinical research finances from start to finish. Before funding is awarded, our team will help you determine Medicaid/Medicare coverage, analyze study cost and timeline, negotiate budgets with study sponsors, and enter budget information into the OnCore clinical trial management system. After funding is awarded, we will help with invoicing, revenue reconciliations, service center payments, review of patient’s accounts, and more.
