Medidata Clinical Cloud: One platform for Data Managers, Clinical Operations, Investigators, and Patients to accelerate the science and business of research.

Today at SCOPE, Medidata
(NASDAQ:MDSO) is introducing the Edge
family of products, a holistic suite of intelligent trial planning and
management solutions that seamlessly address today's operational and
regulatory requirements. Edge enables clinical operations teams to:

  • Optimize study design, feasibility and site grants utilizing
    benchmarking from 14,000+ studies
  • Eliminate site escrow accounts with automatic investigator payments
    triggered by EDC
  • Comply with ICH GCP E6 (R2) requirements with an end-to-end RBM suite
  • Utilize master data management for study management
  • Automate the collection of up to 76% of a trial master file

Edge is supported by the Rave
family of products, the most comprehensive data capture and management
solution, and is powered by Medidata
Enterprise Data Store (MEDS) and AI
. Rave allows sponsors to
capture, manage and explore site, lab, imaging, genomic, app and sensor
data, and real world data. Together, they comprise the Medidata Clinical
Cloud®, which is the unified platform of choice for clinical operations
and data management.

In a recent survey conducted by Medidata, life science decision makers
and users identified the capabilities necessary to deliver the next
generation of clinical trials, including EDC and risk based monitoring

The top criteria for EDC are: price, (24%); integration (23%);
robustness of features (18%); intuitiveness of software (18%); and
database build speed (17%). Medidata's Rave EDC is ranked as the top
solution across all criteria.

For RBM the top criteria are: risk identification & evaluation (26%);
issue management & workflow (21%); reporting, analytics, visualization
(21%); targeted SDV (17%); and site visit management (15%). Edge
Strategic Monitoring is the only end-to-end comprehensive suite that
combines risk assessment and anomaly detection with centralized issue
management, enabling users to identify risks and document actions in
real-time while complying with ICH GCP E6 (R2) requirements.
Furthermore, Medidata addresses 95% of the 130 technical requirements
suggested by TransCelerate
