Clinical Trial Management System

In 2018 Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and the University of Washington went live with an enterprise Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS).

This CTMS serves as a single, centralized, web-based enterprise resource to support clinical research studies conducted within or across the three institutions.

This National Cancer Institute (NCI) mandated system serves to:

  • Strengthen research study reporting
  • Improve study subject management
  • Improve implementation and timelines of research

The CTMS Program Office is responsible for the implementation and ongoing operation of the CTMS and maintains neutrality across the three institutions. The CTMS Program Office aims to empower study teams to advance clinical research and enable administrators to gain insight on research data through collaboration across our institutions.
