Powered by Medidata’s unified platform and enhanced with AI, Clinical Data Studio streamlines data integration, standardization, management, and usage processes.

Actionable Insights Powered by Advanced Analytics

Advanced analytics are the foundation of Medidata Detect, including machine learning, AI, and intelligent process automation. Insights are delivered in intuitive and actionable outputs that support multiple roles in a clinical study, regardless of statistical expertise or programming knowledge. Self-service options include the configuration of custom KRIs, QTLs, and listings, filtering on subsets of data within various analytic representations, and creating trial-specific visualizations and analytics.

Powerful, Modular Capabilities Deliver Role-Based Activities

Medidata Detect’s capabilities are modularized to enable role-based workflow execution, supporting cross-functional users including data managers, CRAs, central monitors, medical monitors, and clinical project managers. Detect enables multiple stakeholders to manage quality and risk throughout the trial, and is fully integrated with an issue management interface to allow team members to assign issues to CRAs for follow-up during communication with sites.

A History of Innovation within the Industry

Medidata Detect was built by experts with extensive direct Risk-based Quality Management (RBQM) operational experience. Medidata was recently named by independent research firm IDC as a leader in the “IDC MarketScape Worldwide Life Science R&D Risk-Based Monitoring Solutions Vendor Assessment for 2022.” This report evaluates capabilities using criteria life science companies should consider when selecting a strategic RBQM solution provider.

Centralized Monitoring Enhances Compliance and Data Consistency

The increased adoption of decentralized methodologies, including electronic clinical outcome assessments (eCOA) and electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePRO) has created a new challenge: ensuring patients comply with completing questionnaires and diaries. Centralized monitoring supported by Medidata Detect is one of the best approaches to identify potential noncompliance quickly so patients and sites can be contacted by the sponsor or CRO for root cause analysis and retraining.

Key Features of Medidata Detect

Patient Data Surveillance

Accelerate Data and Patient-Level Review

Patient Data Surveillance includes Data Reviewer and Patient Profiles applications. Data Reviewer allows data managers to automate data review and reconciliation with AI, simplify with bulk query management, and track patient cleaning status in real-time dashboards. Patient Profiles enables intuitive, in-depth patient safety reviews across all data sources.

Key Risk Indicators

Key Risk Indicators

Key Risk Indicators (KRIs) give monitors and other clinical team members the ability to track site and country performance and compliance. 

Medidata Detect provides ten industry-standard KRIs out of the box, and additional custom KRIs can be created in a matter of minutes from Rave EDC or external datasets. The KRIs module is fully integrated with closed-loop issue management.

Quality Tolerance Limits

Quality Tolerance Limits

Medidata Detect supports identifying systemic and protocol-level issues with Quality Tolerance Limits (QTLs). The QTLs module provides robust risk monitoring capabilities via statistical process control and predictive capabilities.

Centralized Statistical Monitoring

Centralized Statistical Monitoring

Centralized Statistical Monitoring (CSM) provides targeted, easy-to-use analyses for data integrity as well as a machine learning-driven engine for the detection of missing data, data anomalies, gaps, and unusual data association at the data point, patient, site, or country level.

Risk Management

Risk Management

Medidata Risk Management gives sponsors and CROs the visibility and power to manage oversight and risk during study planning through trial conduct. It is an integrated digital solution that identifies critical-to-quality (CtQ) factors, associated risks, and mitigation strategies and monitors for those trial risks through key risk indicators (KRIs) and quality tolerance limits (QTLs).
