Medidata Rave EDC ranked No. 1 most recently used EDC system across the industry

New York – September 13, 2023 - Medidata, a Dassault Systèmes company, was rated the pharmaceutical industry’s preferred provider of electronic data capture (EDC) solutions in a new report by Industry Standard Research. This report also identified Medidata’s Rave EDC as the No. 1 most recently used EDC system across the industry.  

“We understand that for our customers and their patients, a robust, secure, and flexible EDC system is the cornerstone of a successful clinical trial,” says Wayne Walker, senior vice president, Rave Platform Technology, Medidata. “This recognition reinforces our belief that we have the groundbreaking technological solutions and expertise needed to meet our clients’ evolving needs.”  

The EDC Benchmarking and Market Dynamics (5th Ed.) report surveyed 114 respondents on a range of topics, including EDC provider performance, EDC selection criteria, and EDC trends. Respondents from North America, Europe, and Asia selected Rave EDC as the most preferred solution based on the ease of use for sites, sponsors, and contract research organizations (CROs), scalability, real-time data access, capability for mid-study changes, and technical support and training.

Leveraging tools like EDC help set the pace and determine the success of an entire study.  Customers are looking for clinical trial technology solutions that are flexible and scalable and provide data confidence as a study progresses. Ultimately, a robust EDC benefits patients by  accelerating promising drug development and bringing new medicines to market more quickly and efficiently.
