An Ancillary Review refers to an external service or committee that requires approval before a research study can Open to Accrual (OTA). Some examples include the FHCC Cell Processing Facility, FHCC Institutional Biosafety Committee, UW OncoRad, and UW Total Body Irradiation.
The objective of the Ancillary Review Migration is to ensure approval is in place for required reviews before opening a research study to accrual. By migrating these types of ancillary reviews into the OnCore Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS), the CTMS team can manage required reviews and monitor study statuses in a centralized system.
Based on the documents/information the study team submits in the REDCap Intake Form, an Ancillary Review task list will be created in OnCore CTMS. The service/committee will track the completion of required reviews in this task list. OTA is held until all required reviews are completed.
