Christiana Care Health System Selects Huron Consulting Group’s Research Administration Software For Grants Management And Effort Reporting

Huron Consulting Group (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced that Christiana Care Health System has selected its Click® Portal and ecrt® software to implement a comprehensive grants management and effort reporting solution. The new system will help Christiana Care comply with processes required to manage government grants and comply with the reporting terms on awardees by agencies such as the National Institutes of Health.

“Applying for a grant and then managing the award throughout its lifecycle requires meticulous attention to detail and unfailing accuracy in reporting,” said Rob McMurray, vice president and controller, Christiana Care. “We needed an automated system that could not only ensure accuracy and facilitate accountability, but also streamline these complex processes for our system users.”

“Huron’s Click and ecrt products will make reporting easier for our investigators and administrators and increase administrative confidence that award-related processes are flawless,” said Nicholas J. Petrelli, M.D., medical director, Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute, Christiana Care.

Christiana Care Health System is one of the country's largest health care providers. Christiana Care is also a major teaching hospital with two campuses and is a regional center for excellence in cardiology, cancer, bone and joint health and women's health services. Research at Christiana Care encompasses every medical specialty with hundreds of national, regional and locally based studies in progress led by Christiana Care investigators.

Huron’s research software solutions will automate all grants award processes, including proposal creation, budget review and electronic submission to, proposal tracking, and comprehensive award management. In addition, the solution facilitates a compliant approach to effort reporting through integration of various financial, payroll and research administration systems. The automated interplay of these business processes will produce compliant effort reports and efficient awards management.

“We are pleased to play a part in advancing Christiana Care’s research processes,” said Nathan Haines, managing director, Huron Consulting Group. “Researchers want to spend their time on delivering results, not on administration. At the same time, administrative staff members need to balance increased responsibilities more productively. Huron’s research solutions address these burdens across the board for all stakeholders.”

Christiana Care Health System and many other leading research institutions use Huron’s research software solutions to automate a wide range of administrative and compliance processes, including those associated with Institutional Review Board (IRB), Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC), COI, Grants, Effort Reporting, Clinical Trials, and F&A management.
