Company News Release

As part of its growing effort to enhance the efficiency of government-funded healthcare research, Medidata Solutions recently worked with R&D and technical services institute RTI International to upgrade the technology it uses to provide statistical and data coordinating services for National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded research. In recent years, a significantly growing share of this research has been conducted in support of biopharmaceutical development, prompting RTI to introduce new electronic data capture (EDC) and clinical data management (CDM) technology to best handle the unique data quality requirements of FDA-regulated studies.

“RTI required the new EDC/CDM vendor to provide a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that could support rapid transition from existing study databases as well as a robust knowledge transfer program to ensure our complete self-sufficiency,” said Rick Williams, senior research statistician, RTI International. “After extensive review of 20 systems, Medidata Solutions was selected and has met these requirements extremely well, along with providing the appropriate process and business support for government-funded research.”
