OnCore Overview

What is OnCore?

Academic medical centers, cancer centers, and health care systems manage hundreds of protocols at once in an environment where there are many other, often competing, concerns ranging from limited resources to meeting ever-changing regulatory requirements. Furthermore, gaining visibility into operations and maintaining effective communication across research groups can pose significant challenges.

What do you like best?

It is very intuitive on how to navigate the software and it is easy to use and organize the mounds of data that come along with a clinical trial. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It looks like a very sterile software, the UI isn't super interesting, but I guess that's how clinical software is. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Best on the market for clinical trial management, specifically of you are a cancer research center. The online community is helpful and the customer support team is always there to help. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the way that we once kept track of our clinical trials. It is great because there is a whole collaborative community of AMCs and Cancer Centers interacting with how they use the software. And collaboration is key in the clinical research industry.

What do you like best?

I liked that you can customize roles in the staff list, instead of just using preset defaults. The branching for task management, process tracking, and notifying the next signatory authority when it is time for them to completed their part is all very easy to navigate, saves a lot of effort in remembering to notify the next person to move things along. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that you cannot hide fields that are not of use to a particular study or research team. I think that there is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to the display logic and navigating through the pages could be made more consumer-intuitive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Although I don't know much about the purchasing side of the equation, I do know that from the perspective of someone who had to use the platform daily, my number one piece of advice is to really utilize any training, including supplemental training that your organization offers. It's a fairly dynamic platform, but in order to help it help you, you've got to know all of the capabilities and how to navigate them for your specific role. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Although I no longer use OnCore in my current role, the organization I work for has continued to use it and expand its availability to other departments. It has helped streamline the process of protocol activation and also allows for excellent checks and balances between different stages of protocol activation, study submission, and client management.

What do you like best?

I was introduced to OnCore as a new research coordinator and I do not know how I would have completed the work I needed to do without this software. Between the billing mechanisms, calendaring, and electronic care report forms, OnCore helped me keep organized and on track. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Forte really has not made this software flexible for non-cancer center use, which I think is pretty short sighted. There are a handful of aspects in OnCore that I have to, as a non-cancer center coordinator, just have to ignore. Also, OnCore is visually not very appealing - although I have heard this is going to change in the next major update. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Put in the time to learn the software because it really will save you time in the long run and I think clinical trial management systems are where the industry is going. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

OnCore has helped me keep develop and conduct a clinical trial. Being able to have subject information, calendars, and electronic case report forms in one place has been immensely helpful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
