New Products Address Sponsor Pain Points Across Clinical Development Chain
From booth #1101, Medidata will be providing demos of key products, including:

  • Medidata Insights™ – The latest version of its clinical business analytics solution, Medidata Insights offers access to hundreds of metrics across critical operational areas, such as site enrollment, data quality and eCRF design, alongside industry benchmarks based on data from thousands of current and historical clinical trials. Insights Reports deliver advanced visualizations of key clinical operations metrics to enable sponsors to quickly identify and pursue opportunities for improved efficiency, both within individual trials and across portfolios – without the risk, cost or delays traditionally faced with enterprise-level business analytics implementations.

  • Medidata Standards Accelerator™ – Standards Accelerator provides end-to-end support for SDTM-compliant outputs in an optimized and repeatable fashion, enabling sponsors to satisfy FDA submission guidelines in less time and at a lower cost. Leveraging Medidata Services expertise in standards support, the solution includes CDASH forms for 17 standard SDTM domains, Medidata Rave dictionaries using CDISC controlled terminology, and Rave edit checks and custom functions that help to enforce the SDTM standard.

  • Medidata Coder™ – An enterprise-grade, SaaS coding solution, Medidata Coder provides a single, centralized coding environment that integrates with any source system and works with Medidata Rave EDC/CDM. Using real-time coding processes enabled by Coder, researchers can further reduce coding cycle times and expedite query resolution. Coder offers simplified dictionary upgrades, including efficient migration of synonyms and coding decisions and unlimited coding segments across different therapeutic areas, NDA groups and geographies.

Medidata Rave Integrates with EMRs at Interoperability Showcase
Medidata is also sponsoring DIA’s inaugural Interoperability Showcase. The Showcase, led by DIA, CDISC, HIMSS and the IHE, will offer demonstrations of new solutions that facilitate improved clinical research and safety reporting capabilities.
