The Medidata Way: Committed to Trust and Transparency in Clinical Trials

Trust. It’s a simple concept that can be hard to define. And too often when life sciences companies talk about trustworthiness, it’s because theirs is in question. 

Medidata Approaches Trust Differently

At Medidata, trust is at the core of every decision we make, because trust is the foundation of every successful relationship—be it personal or professional. 

To us trust isn’t a concept, it’s a commitment—to patients, customers, and ourselves.

It’s how we concept and design our technology and products, where everything is deeply informed by patient perspectives and geared towards ensuring data privacy in clinical trials. Medidata Patient Cloud is recognized as the industry’s most comprehensive patient-centric solution. It’s the way we offer our more than one million registered users across 1,900+ customers and partners access to the world’s most trusted platform for clinical development, commercial, and real-world data.

And it’s how we measure ourselves, knowing that our work is helping to solve the impossible and fuel the hopes of millions of patients. That’s why trust is the driving force behind our information security processes, the lifeblood of our patient data privacy practices, and the cornerstone of our quality management systems. The three pillars of our business, known as our Unified Protection Strategy, with numbers that speak for themselves.

A Legacy of Trust that Spans Decades

For more than 20 years we’ve built our company on a foundation of clinical trial transparency and integrity, because we believe trust is the most worthwhile investment a company can make. 

It’s allowed us to define our industry’s gold standards around information security, patient data privacy, and quality management, and then enabled us to exceed those standards at every opportunity. Resulting in a comprehensive set of certifications, attestations, and awards, as well as the loyalty and partnership of thousands of customers.

Above all, we understand that in our industry, clinical trial transparency is what earns trust. And that remains at the core of all that Medidata does because trust is who we are at our core.


“Trust is about reliability, honesty, and integrity. Those are things that Medidata has stood for over the years, and in two decades, I feel we've built a very high level of trust because we've listened, we've adapted, and we've innovated.”

—Tarek Sherif, Life Sciences & Healthcare Sector Board Chairman, Dassault Systèmes
