CREDIT + IRBANA = Increased Efficiency

CREDIT had its origin in oncology and continues today as the premiere web-based software for community sites supported by the National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP.) CREDIT was developed through funding from Phase I and Phase II cooperative agreements with the NCI.

While IRBANA fully functions as a stand-alone IRB management system, it was originally developed to work hand-in-hand with CREDIT to maximize efficiency. Protocol data and documents are seamlessly exchanged between the two systems, eliminating duplicate data entry. Staff access permissions allow users to use/see the data they need to perform their required job duties.
