We are here to lift the burden off of you, so you can focus on the research and patients.

Forte, an industry-leading developer of clinical research solutions, announced company updates and the winners of the Onsemble Rock Star Award and the Award for Excellence in Clinical Research Operations during the 2018 Spring Onsemble Conference at the Sawgrass Marriott in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

During the keynote, Shree Kalluri, Founder, CEO and Chief Customer Officer, shared how the Onsemble Community has grown over the past 12 years with 250 attendees from 71 research organizations joining us at our largest conference to date. This past year alone, Forte welcomed nine new institutions to the community. “We are here to lift the burden off of you, so you can focus on the research and patients” Kalluri shared.

Each conference, Forte recognizes members that embody the collaborative spirit of the Onsemble community. Nominated and voted by their peers, the winner and finalists of the 2018 Spring Onsemble Rock Star award are members who go above and beyond answering questions, sharing best practices and fostering discussions across many research organizations. For the 2018 Spring winner, the community voted Lindsay Mann from Indiana University as the newest Onsemble Rock Star.

Forte also announced the winners of the Award for Excellence in Clinical Research Operations, which recognizes institutions for their performance and improvement in clinical operations based on data gathered in analytics platform Site Benchmarks. The winner for Top Performance is University of Alabama Birmingham and Most Improved winner is Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.

Solution Updates

In their mission to help customers unleash their research potential, Forte announced several new software and services updates.

OnCore / Forte EDC / Participant Payments
Forte continues to reduce the administrative burden for its customers and further centralize operations across systems. OnCore now integrates with their electronic data capture system, Forte EDC and their automated participant payment system, Forte Participant Payments.

The integrations decrease duplicate data entry, increase data quality and streamline protocol operations.

Forte Research Evaluation System (EVAL) now features Member Scenarios, a tool created to help organizations demonstrate programmatic collaboration for CCSG grant applications and renewals. This new tool allows cancer centers to easily evaluate and manage their membership by showing the implications of moving members from one program to another and presenting the resulting data in real time.

Forte announced the Master Delegation of Authority log and integration with OnCore to help with enterprise roll out and full portfolio management. The Master Delegation of Authority helps increase regulatory compliance by standardizing delegated tasks at the system level, reducing errors and delays in gathering individual signatures for every protocol. Integration with OnCore this year will decrease duplicate data entry, increase data quality and streamline protocol operations.

Forte announced Digital Research through Connected Technologies (DiReCT), an invite-only initiative that will facilitate inter-institutional data exchanges between the coordinating center and the participating sites for multi-site investigator-initiated trials.
