Medidata Solutions (NASDAQ: MDSO) marked another key milestone in its support of government-funded oncology research with Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, starting its 33rd electronic study running on Medidata’s clinical development technology. With funding from the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, the Princess Margaret at Toronto’s University Health Network has built a standardized clinical database and data management service in support of the largest drug development program in Canada and one of the top 10 programs worldwide.
Medidata Rave is a web-based SaaS solution for electronic data capture, management and reporting that is instantly and securely accessible, and designed to ensure that high-quality data is available for analysis rapidly and cost effectively. With support from Medidata’s Knowledge Transfer program, the Princess Margaret built a team of eight study designers and builders that are extremely efficient at setting up new studies, ensuring high quality data is available for analysis and making query resolution cost efficient and timely. Rave’s intelligently designed study build tool, Architect, features a complete set of capabilities that enable study teams with research and data management backgrounds, not programming skills, to build and deploy studies themselves, supporting faster and more seamless study starts.
Important for the critical oncology research underway in academic and government institutions globally, Medidata Rave is 21 CFR Part 11 and Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) compliant. Powerful, standards-based web services application programming interfaces (APIs) facilitate rapid integration with other systems, including National Cancer Institute (NCI) systems and databases, to support advanced workflows, analysis, reporting and migration of data from existing clinical databases.
