What is OnCore?

OnCore is a suite of clinical and translational research modules consisting of software for research, patient registry and biospecimen management. It is a product of Forte Research Systems, based in Madison, WI. OnCore has been successfully implemented in 44 institutions, 23 of which are NCI designated Cancer Centers and 21 are multi-disciplinary institutions. More recently, in addition to Yale University, Forte has worked with leading academic institutions such as the University of Wisconsin and University of California San Francisco to do enterprise-wide deployments of OnCore that extend beyond the Cancer Center.
