NEW YORK, N.Y. – October 27, 2008 – Medidata Solutions, a leading provider of clinical trial solutions, today announced the launch of Medidata Developer Central, a Web-based community that supports developers’ efforts to integrate their clinical trial solutions with Medidata Rave®, an industry-leading electronic data capture (EDC), clinical data management (CDM) and reporting system. This unique online venue provides a collaborative environment where innovative technology and service providers, as well as sponsors, can gain expertise to integrate solutions – such as interactive voice response (IVR), electronic patient reported outcomes (ePRO) and clinical trial management tools – with Medidata Rave. Developer Central simplifies the development path and makes it easy for sponsors of clinical research to extend Rave’s core platform capabilities to maximize the value of their current and future technology investments.
The launch of Medidata Developer Central extends the support of Medidata’s Rave Web Services API, which Medidata made available in June to enable independent, rapid and cost-effective integrations so that customers can enjoy a seamless eClinical environment with real-time, inbound and outbound data sharing using industry standards. Medidata Rave offers industry-leading clinical systems interoperability with its standards-based design – a design that has exclusively earned Rave CDISC certification for all eight operational data model (ODM) use cases.
Medidata created Developer Central in response to the growing demand from technology providers and contract research organizations (CROs) to integrate other technology solutions with Medidata Rave. Developer Central also addresses the industry’s rising number of IT developers relying on Web-based tools and online communities for their software development. A number of developers from clinical technology providers have already joined Medidata Developer Central as pilot members, including individuals from the following innovative companies:
