CROS NT Extends Medidata Partnership

Maidenhead, UK and Chapel Hill, NC – CROS NT today announced the go-live of its RaveX team in an extension of the company’s partnership with Medidata.

Under the partnership, CROS NT will offer its customers RaveX-the latest generation of Medidata’s industry-leading EDC system, Medidata Rave-as well as Medidata’s randomization and trial supply management (RTSM) system, Medidata Balance. The Data Management division in CROS NT offers Sponsors of clinical trials resources that are certified in the use of RaveX and Balance, on a project basis or in the form of functional service provision (FSP).

Services offered by the Data Management team include database build, data management and medical coding, all of which can be delivered from Europe, the U.S. and India. CROS NT has put in place a range of both statistical and data management technologies along with processes to give Sponsors oversight of the quality of monitoring and the quality of data coming from sites.

The extended partnership is part of CROS NT’s on-going development in operational capability. “CROS NT makes significant efforts to remain at the forefront of innovation. We are always seeking more efficient solutions for customers needing clinical trial services. Therefore, we are pleased to announce the extension of our partnership with Medidata, which is making great strides in the development of their own technology platform that allows us to better serve the needs of our expanding client base,” said Andrew MacGarvey, CEO of CROS NT. “This is especially important in the context of recent ICH E6 R2 guidelines, which call for a risk-based approach to clinical trials. We look forward to working with Medidata to deliver effective solutions for our customers,” he added.
