    Hi Ramya,

    We do use CTMS at our site - VELOS in particular. VELOS has a good capacity for patient calendars and tracking financial milestones. It also interfaces with our EMR (EPIC) to assist with research billing and identifying patients in the EMR for providers.

    Do you have a CTMS? Which one?

    Good to "e-meet" you!

    Hi Lora,

    I have worked with oncore while at Vanderbilt. At Intermountain, we are using clinical conductor. It is not that user friendly. I'm guessing every CTMS has its own advantages and disadvantages. Curious what other sites have been using in general-

    Good to e-meet you too!

    I am a huge proponent of CTMS and data analytics to drive decision making and simulate discussion. I have had experience with Velds, OnCore and now iMEDRAS. Most do the job in terms of basics. From an oncology perspective the Forte OnCore product and community has been the most efficient to implement. There is a strong research community associated with in that is heavily encouraged and supported by the developer. The enhancements are typically a result of round-table discussions with varying perspectives (operations, technical, subject matter experts, medical directors, etc.). The patient tracking is comprehensive and can interface with most EHRs to guide charge adjudication but requires dedicated site resources and expertise. Lastly the OnCore reporting functionality includes most common reports in the "canned" version (i.e. time to activation, accrual reports by sponsor type/disease, investigator productivity, etc.) to be able to extract quality data and custom reporting is very good but even better there is an data analytics overlay called insights that essentially takes the CTMS data and visualizes it into interactive dashboards so you can slide the data from any perspective. Would strongly recommend exploring a demo.
