Medidata Rave Engage is an intuitive web-based application that serves
as the patient-facing interface for virtual trials and hybrid studies

enables sponsors to choose the right balance of site-based and virtual
visits. Through Rave Engage, sponsors and investigators improve
operational efficiency, scalability, and patient recruitment and
retention—all of which result in better data and lower trial costs.

Presented to Medidata at the 14th Annual Scrip Awards on November 28,
2018 in London, the award celebrates excellence and innovation in the
biopharmaceutical industry and a continued commitment to improving
healthcare on a global scale. A panel of judges—comprised of
