Boehringer Ingelheim Extends the Use of Medidata Rave for Electronic Data Capture in Clinical Trials

Collaboration Includes Industry-Leading Technologies and Decentralized Clinical Trial Capabilities to Increase Study Efficiency and Patient Engagement

New York–October 27, 2022 – Medidata, a Dassault Systèmes company, and Boehringer Ingelheim today announced a five-year renewal of their collaboration in the wider area of electronic data capture. The new agreement extends the use of Rave EDC for Boehringer Ingelheim's clinical trials worldwide and includes myMedidata, Medidata’s suite of innovative patient-facing technologies focused on enhancing patient centricity and diversity in decentralized clinical trials (DCTs).

The agreement adds to Boehringer Ingelheim’s focus on engaging patients in a meaningful way by providing Medidata’s scalable patient-centered capabilities. This includes the myMedidata patient portal, a single-destination web-based platform, which provides access to electronic consent, electronic Clinical Outcome Assessment (eCOA), and myMedidata LIVE video investigator/patient visits.

“As industry leaders, Boehringer Ingelheim and Medidata have a responsibility to innovate for the benefit of patients,” said Anthony Costello, CEO Patient Cloud at Medidata. “Boehringer Ingelheim’s global reach across therapeutic areas is a perfect match for the scalable capabilities of myMedidata and the rest of the Medidata Clinical Cloud platform. Together, we will be able to quickly improve access and diversity of participation in a wide range of clinical programs.”

The Medidata Decentralized Clinical Trials Program – the industry’s only scalable, end-to-end offering – is helping to revolutionize how individuals provide data, how drugs are shipped to patients, and how clinical trial data are managed and monitored. Most importantly, these remote technologies create opportunities to improve patient access, inclusion, and engagement across geographies, and improve patient diversity in clinical trials.

Boehringer Ingelheim has built on Medidata technologies, including Rave EDC (electronic data capture), Coder, TSDV (targeted source data verification), and Safety Gateway. Boehringer Ingelheim is also exploring Medidata AI Intelligent Trials to provide advanced analytics to improve the speed, success, and quality of clinical trials, and is benefitting from Medidata Rave Imaging technology via services contracted with the company’s imaging suppliers.
