OnCore at Siteman Cancer Center
Up until 2015, trial tracking had been heavily reliant on multiple workflows, such as the Siteman Database (SCC), Excel files, paper notes, and other systems. The vision of OnCore hopes to maintain all of these work processes in one centralized place in order to increase efficiency, reduce stress, and better adapt to the ever-changing world of research.
