About the Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS)

USC’s Clinical Trial Management System, OnCore, is a jointly sponsored, web-based software system for managing clinical trials. The CTMS is integrated with the Electronic Medical Records to streamline the process of managing clinical trials. KeckCare (Keck Medicine of USC) and KIDS (CHLA) Research Administrators, Study Coordinators, Budget Specialists, and Researchers conducting research at USC, LAC and CHLA select the OnCore platform and have worked to customize and configure the CTMS since October 2014.

History of the CTMS project

After an analysis of infrastructure gaps for clinical research, the university identified the need for an Enterprise Clinical Trial Management System. This is a joint and collaborative effort of the USC Provost/Office of Research, the Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute, Keck Medicine of USC and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
