Rave Companion

Make Data Entry Easier and Faster for your Clinical Trial Sites

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

Make Data Entry Faster and Easier for Sites

Enable your sites to dramatically reduce the time they spend re-keying data by quickly, easily, and accurately capturing electronic source data from any system (including EHR and CTMS) or document into Rave EDC.

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

Data automatically populated by Rave Companion from an electronic health record into Rave EDC is electronically sourced, therefore reducing the need for source data verification (SDV).

White Paper: 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.

Video: 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.

Podcast: 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.
