Medidata Announces Expansion of Multi-Year Partnership with Catalyst Clinical Research for Oncology Trials

Ongoing collaboration demonstrates Medidata’s expertise in supporting clinical research organizations through all stages of growth

New York – October 26, 2023 – Medidata, a Dassault Systèmes company and leading provider of clinical trial solutions to the life sciences industry, today announced a multi-year partnership expansion with Catalyst Clinical Research to support their global oncology brand, Catalyst Oncology. This renewal builds upon Catalyst’s existing success with the Medidata Platform and incorporates wider offerings, including Medidata Grants Manager and Medidata AI Intelligent Trials, as Catalyst has grown into a robust and global full-service clinical research organization.

This continued commitment for Medidata Rave EDC, Medidata Rave CTMS, and Medidata Rave eTMF enables Catalyst to run complex clinical trials while simplifying its operations and management. By using these integrated capabilities, and incorporating the expansive elements of Grants Manager and Intelligent Trials, Catalyst can streamline workflows, automate document management, and improve visibility to critical trial metrics.

“Medidata remains our preferred partner because of their scalability and skill in managing complex trials,” said Nik Morton, president and COO, Catalyst. "Their advanced technology will further support our growth and expansion."

Catalyst has supported over 150 oncology studies and is currently managing more than 80 next-generation cancer clinical trials today across Phases I-III. With 90% of all oncology approvals last year in the U.S. developed using Medidata software, Catalyst’s use of the Medidata Platform will be critical to their continued expansion. In addition, Catalyst is excited to leverage Medidata AI, which accesses a dataset spanning more than 20 years to engage a more diverse patient population and accelerate enrollment.

“Medidata is thrilled to serve as Catalyst’s partner since their first trial in 2019 and be part of their continued success,” said Joan Shaiman, senior vice president, Partners, Medidata. “Their decision to recommit to the core elements of our Platform and adopt broader solutions demonstrates that we have the expertise and capabilities needed to support faster decision-making and accelerate trials to advance cancer research.”
