UCLA Clinical Research Informatics Systems (CRIS) leverages technology in concert with workflow re-engineering to ensure efficient, compliant, and nimble clinical research business processes. CRIS produces transparent and actionable business metrics, provides business support and analytics, as well as system configuration, data management/migration, and workflow re-engineering. Other functions include training and end-user support. Additionally, the CRIS team manages and maintains OnCore, which is a clinical trials management system (CTMS) used at UCLA for the management of clinical trials in clinical research. The system maintains and manages planning, performing, and reporting functions at the study and subject level along with participant contact information and tracking of deadlines and milestones. The use of OnCore enables the study team to set up and manage all protocols and subjects in one place, supports clinical research billing, simplifies data management and monitoring, improves patient recruitment and tracking, and automates the flow of information between UCLA-based systems including WebIRB, Proposal and Award Tracking System (PATS), and CareConnect. The CRIS team works collaboratively with Financial Coverage and Activation, Clinical Research Business Partners (CRBP), and Research Connect team members to provide a variety of data solutions and operation management tools for clinical research teams.
