Rave Companion reduces clinical trial data entry efforts for sites by making it simpler and faster to get source data from any system (e.g., EHR – electronic health record) or document (e.g., lab values in a spreadsheet) into Rave EDC. Rave Companion dramatically reduces the time trial sites spend keying in data and resolving queries so they can spend more time with their patients. And it enables sponsors and CROs to get higher quality data, faster.
Unlike EHR-to-EDC integration approaches that require point-to-point connections and complex mapping between systems, Rave Companion is much simpler and faster to implement, making it very scalable, and it’s not limited to EHR data.
Benefits of Rave Companion
Get Cleaner Clinical Trial Data, Faster
Rave Companion reduces manual data entry, resulting in fewer errors. Fewer errors means fewer queries need to be raised by your CRAs and Data Managers and resolved by your sites.
Reduce Data Monitoring Efforts
Rave Companion (via Medidata Health Record Connect) presents patient health record information to the site user, from which they can select to populate fields in the case report form and subsequently review and submit the data to Rave EDC. Because the data is electronically sourced, sponsors/CROs can reduce the need for source data verification (SDV).
“Rave Companion has been really helpful in reducing my time and frustration with data entry. It’s easy to use and always on top when I need it. It was simple to get started, and it helps me focus less on the manual burden of data entry and more on delivering great clinical research.”
– Melanie Curole, Sr. Research Coordinator, Velocity Clinical Research
“We’re excited that Medidata has decided to invest in technology that directly addresses one of the major pain points in sites’ being able to take on and expand their clinical research efforts. We believe Rave Companion will reduce our time spent in data entry, increase job satisfaction, reduce monitoring costs, and ultimately make for better, more efficient research.”

Key Features of Rave Companion
No Back and Forth
Rave Companion keeps the Rave EDC form front and center wherever the user goes to find data. There’s no need to switch back and forth between windows. No more ‘swivel chair’.
Works For Any Site, Instantly
Rave Companion can be used ‘out-of-the-box’ by any site, anywhere, without setting up any integrations. Data can be captured from any source system or document using a simple point or drag and click.
Populate with EHR Data
Rave Companion presents structured EHR data (using Medidata Health Record Connect) to assist sites in quickly finding and selecting data for case report forms. Rave Companion further accelerates data entry by auto-populating multiple fields with values from the same data range. The site user can then review the completed form before submitting it to Rave EDC.
Rave Data Management
Rave Companion is part of Medidata’s unified solution for Clinical Data Management on the Medidata Clinical Cloud™, enabling aggregation and reconciliation of data from multiple sources – Rave EDC, Medidata eConsent, Medidata eCOA, MyMedidata, Rave RTSM, Rave Imaging, and Sensor Cloud; and intelligent data review and analysis with Rave TSDV and Medidata Detect.
Rave EDC is the most advanced, robust, and secure system for clinical trial site, patient, and lab data capture and management.
Rave Safety Gateway – Safety Data Transmission
Rave Safety Gateway delivers precise, accurate, and efficient transmission of AEs and SAEs in Rave EDC to your safety system. Eliminate duplicate data entry, accelerate the transmission of safety case data and reduce data reconciliation between clinical and safety teams.
Solving the EHR to EDC Challenge – A Scalable-First Approach
We all know about the data entry or re-entry burden our clinical trials place on our sites. Much of that data may already exist in the EHR (electronic health record) system. This white paper explores the importance of solving the EHR to EDC data re-entry challenge; why we’ve struggled to solve the problem at scale; how regulatory and technology tailwinds make a scalable solution possible; and introduces Medidata’s solution, Rave Companion.
Note To File Livestream: Solving the EHR to EDC Challenge with Wayne Walker
On his ‘Note To File’ series livestream recorded in 2023, Brad Hightower and Medidata’s Senior Vice President of Product, Wayne Walker, discuss why making data re-entry into EDC simpler and easier for clinical trial sites is crucial, why a scalable solution has been so difficult to achieve, and Medidata’s approach to solving this problem and its benefits for sites, patients, and sponsors/CROs.
SCRS Talks with Dan Braga: EHR Data into EDC: Making it Simpler for Sites
In this episode of the SCRS (Society for Clinical Research Sites) Talks podcast, we explore the transition from EHR (Electronic Health Records) to EDC (Electronic Data Capture) and its implications for healthcare professionals and patients alike. Dan Braga, Vice President of Product Management and Digital Health Solutions at Medidata Solutions, shares how patients, healthcare providers, researchers, and the healthcare industry as a whole gain from the seamless integration of these technologies. Learn about the roadblocks faced by the industry and why this groundbreaking transformation has taken time to reach its full potential.
