Invoicing clinical trials can be a difficult and daunting task that requires a specialized group experienced in clinical research combined with financial training. These areas of difficulty lay within invoicing per patient activities, tracking withholding amounts, invoicing administrative fees, reconciling payments received and ensuring funds are deposited in the correct grant accounts.

Created in September 2008, the Office for Clinical Research’s invoicing began providing a focused and transparent approach to management of study accounts for investigators at Grady Memorial Hospital. The model limited responsibilities specifically excluding effort reporting and full grant management. Thus, allowing the team to concentrate exclusively on invoicing, collections and compliance related to each study account.

  • Through fiscal year 2012, OCR Invoicing manages 308 active studies for the departments of Hematology and Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Neurosurgery, Surgery, Neurology and Geriatrics across Emory University.
