Novella Clinical Taps Medidata Solutions for Additional Insight into Clinical Research Costs

October 12, 2011

Company News Release

Medidata Solutions announced that Novella Clinical has expanded its use of Medidata products with the addition of Medidata Grants Manager®, the investigator site benchmarking tool. Grants Manager offers Novella a clear competitive advantage by enabling access to critical cost data to more accurately forecast trial costs as it serves sponsors outsourcing clinical trial activities. Grants Manager is designed to help users streamline site budget negotiations, ensure fair and reliable investigator payments, mitigate compliance risks, and reduce time of site enrollment.

Novella first partnered with Medidata in 2005 when it adopted Medidata Rave®, a system for electronic data capture, management, and analysis. Now, with the adoption of Grants Manager, Novella has access to Medidata’s unique PICAS® database—a clinical cost database derived from negotiated agreements between sponsors, investigators and CROs—which will bring insight into industry-benchmarked investigator site costs. Grants Manager offers access to data from nearly a quarter million grants and contracts and more than 27,000 protocols in over 1,400 indications.

As a Medidata Services Partner, Novella is accredited in Medidata Rave to provide a full suite of Rave-related services, including end-user training, user and site administration, study build, reporting, outputs, integrations, and migrations. The addition of Grants Manager into Novella’s clinical systems environment further enables it to provide services that streamline and enhance its customers’ clinical trials.
