Services Overview


The Online Collaborative Research Environment (OnCore), is a clinical trial management system (CTMS) that enables the management of research, finacial, safety, regulatory, biospecimen, and operational data in one location.  It is the system in use at the University of California San Francisco for Coverage Analysis and all clinical trials or research studies requiring Coverage Analysis must have a protocol record and study calendar in OnCore.

Coverage Analysis 

At UCSF we use a formal Coverage Analysis (CA) process to ensure compliant clinical research billing.  A CA is necessary for all clinical trials involving interventions in which any items and services are or may be invoiced to the patient insurer(s). Any clinical research on human subjects submitted to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) will be analyzed to determine whether a CA will be required.

In addition to the Coverage Analysis charge designations for your research study, the OCR offers budget creation and negotiation services.
