Medidata Remote Source Review

Success in clinical trial operations now requires a dedicated remote site access and monitoring strategy. Medidata Remote Source Review is a cloud-based solution that rapidly and remotely enables your monitors to acquire critical documents, automates document workflows to the right monitor for the right study and site, and allows them to review documents to support Source Data Verification (SDV) and Source Data Review (SDR) for compliance and quality. 

Remote Source Review is a critical component of remote monitoring, a holistic, innovative digital solution to enable a flexible on-site/off-site approach to study oversight and optimize your Risk-Based Quality Management strategy.

Optimize Remote Clinical Trials with Medidata Remote Source Review

Remote Monitoring in Clinical Trials Saves Costs

Remote Monitoring of critical source documents reduces the costs of your monitors prepping for and going on-site for SDV/SDR, eliminating site travel and per diem costs for those visits.

Reduce Clinical Trial Site Burden

With simple upload and redaction tools, and automated workflow/task management, sites need less time to prepare for monitoring visits for SDV/SDR. Remote Source Review can be connected to Rave EDC which automatically creates study subjects, reducing time spent by site personnel entering data. Remote Source Review is part of the Medidata Clinical Cloud® and users benefit from a single sign-on through iMedidata.

Improve Clinical Trial Study Efficiency and Speed

Since off-site/remote monitoring removes monitor travel time, Medidata Remote Source Review expedites time to review documents and data improving clinical trial management efficiency.

Ensure Clinical Trial Data Quality & Compliance

Medidata Remote Source Review is a 21 CFR Part 11-compliant system and protects PII and PHI with built-in redaction functionality that helps reduce errors. Intelligent workflows and flexible permissions enable automatic distribution of your source documents to the right monitors for their assigned sites. Automated source document removal, once SDR/SDV is complete, ensures compliance with regulatory requirements. A full audit log and documentation helps you track and re-verify data, reducing the risk of failing an audit.

Gain Clinical Trial Oversight, Control, and Visibility

Remote Source Review provides a series of standard reports for task management and status updates and improves your oversight with a full audit trail that captures all activities. Electronic documents are available for your review immediately upon upload.
