Medidata Wins Inaugural SCOPE Site Innovation Award for Pioneering Advancements in Site Experience with Leading-Edge Technology

Medidata Rave Companion, the industry’s first data entry companion, is recognized for improving the speed and accuracy of information capture and quality

New York – March 26, 2024 – Medidata, a Dassault Systèmes brand and leading provider of clinical trial solutions to the life sciences industry, was presented with the inaugural Site Innovation Award for its groundbreaking work in improving efficiency in clinical trials by the Summit for Clinical Ops Executives (SCOPE).

Medidata Rave Companion was selected as the winner for its ability to elevate the site experience, enabling sites to spend more time conducting research, caring for patients, and delivering high-quality data to sponsors. This next-generation solution enhances data quality and lowers monitoring costs by making it easier and faster to input information into Medidata Rave EDC from other electronic systems, including electronic health records (EHR). In fact, one clinical trial site reported that data entry was 44 times faster with Rave Companion than doing it manually.

“We’re honored to receive the Site Innovation Award and to be recognized by SCOPE,” said Dan Braga, vice president, electronic health record and healthcare solutions, Medidata. “We are inspired to continue innovating in all aspects of clinical trials to enhance the experience for everyone involved, including patients.”

“Data entry within a clinical trial is often time-consuming and is an area that can affect a site’s overall quality of work,” said Melanie Curole, senior research coordinator, Velocity Clinical Research, a Medidata Customer. “Rave Companion is user-friendly, lessens the amount of time spent on data entry, and decreases the opportunity for transcription errors - helping to ensure high-quality data is being delivered to sponsors while meeting their timelines.”

SCOPE is a leading global conference series that focuses on advances and innovative solutions in all aspects of clinical trial research, planning, management, operations, and investments.
