MEDS (Medidata Enterprise Data Store)
The data foundation of the Medidata Rave Clinical Cloud™ and the backbone of everything Medidata.
MEDS is the repository for all your study data from both Medidata and non-Medidata sources. MEDS will contain data from more than 20,000 studies run on the Medidata Rave Clinical Cloud platform, 600,000 site and sponsor interactions, and more than 6 million patients.
MEDS enables fit-for-purpose data of all types—patient, clinical, and operational—to be aligned with master data. You can apply advanced analytics and machine learning and surface the outputs across all Medidata products and applications. MEDS makes it easy for you to find, access, interoperate and reuse data so you can work from a single source of truth that links all the data for you.
Not a Traditional Data Warehouse
MEDS isn’t simply a place where all data is stored or co-located. It’s the platform where data can be ingested, transformed, extracted, and accessed via a suite of robust tools and solutions. It easily scales to the size of your organization and requires minimal time and cost to implement and maintain. Unlike a traditional data warehouse, MEDS provides the orchestration and unification to create a single source of truth for all clinical data captured or ingested in the Medidata Rave Clinical Cloud platform.
Uniform Data Tools Power Platform Applications
To help you realize the full potential of any Medidata Rave Clinical Cloud™ application, MEDS comes with tools and utilities that enable a common user interface, navigation, and access to all your study data.
Ingestion: Reliable and Robust Gateway
MEDS can manage multiple data types and formats (Rave and non-Rave EDC, third-party, labs, imaging, and RWD, to name a few). Medidata-driven processing ensures that the data brought in (e.g., patient IDs, visits and procedures) can seamlessly integrate with data in MEDS, and align and synchronize downstream and across the entire platform.
Reporting: Uncover Insights Across All Your Studies and Go to Market Faster
With patient, clinical, and operational data from your studies unified and mastered in MEDS, you can analyze disparate trials together. You glean useful insights for less effort, time, and money. Rave Reporter presents the data in a user-friendly interface to help you better manage your portfolio and shorten time to market. It provides platform reporting out of the box as well as user-defined, ad-hoc reporting capabilities.
Extracting: Access Your Data When and How You Need It
The MEDS Extractor tool offers a one-stop shop to extract datasets in standardized formats for interim analysis or regulatory submissions. It supports various formats such as SAS, PDF, XLS, CSV, and more. Through the MEDS Extractor user-friendly, intuitive interface, you can run on-demand or scheduled extracts of cross-platform data, greatly alleviating manual reconciliation.
APIs: Automate Your Data Interactions and Enhance Interoperability
MEDS is equipped with simple, powerful, and secure APIs and web services, providing you programmatic access to its raw, transformed, and analytics data. This capability enables interoperability and distribution of data inside and outside the Medidata Rave Clinical Cloud™ platform.
