Log In to ERMS


ERMS is a web-based clinical research management tool used to assist Emory Healthcare and Emory University with their joint research billing compliance program. It facilitates communication of subject enrollment and study visit activity by the research team with the billing departments, as well as identifies all clinical trials occurring at Emory and Emory affiliates for the purpose of ensuring patient safety.

There are four types of studies entered in ERMS:

  1. Meets the NIH or FDA definition of a clinical trial. The ERMS Activation Form (DOCX) (for Enrollment Notification, v7, 6.18.21), (if there are no EHC billables) must be submitted to before the study is activated in ERMS.
  2. Has EHC or GHS billable items or services, requiring a PRA.
  3. Managed by OCR Invoicing team.
  4. Conducted under expanded access protocols for multiple patients.
