Cala Health Streamlines Data and Operational Management for Neurological Device Study with Medidata Cloud

Study leverages Medidata Rave EDC, Edge eTMF and Edge Payments

  • Cala Health unifies data and streamlines payments and document management on the Medidata Cloud

  • Medidata supports observational study of first-in-class non-invasive, targeted nerve stimulator for the treatment of Essential Tremor

  • The one platform approach eliminates need for multiple vendors to manage study operations

NEW YORK – Dec. 18, 2018 - Medidata (NASDAQ: MDSO) today announced that Cala Health, a neuromodulation platform company developing wearable therapies for chronic disease, is adopting the Medidata Cloud to centralize management of a large observational study.

Cala Health’s lead product, Cala TWO, delivers patterned electrical stimulation to nerves through the skin twice per day. The PROSPECT study will expand the understanding of therapeutic effect and patient experience with an on-demand therapy over three months.

The Medidata Cloud, the Intelligent Platform for Life Sciences, will:

  • Centralize and unify data for cross-team collaboration and to maintain inspection readiness

  • Streamline internal processes, including payments and the management of study documents

  • Eliminate the need for multiple vendors to manage the study

“We looked for reputation, scalability, and a complete platform approach for all stakeholders involved in our observational study, and found exactly that with Medidata eTMF, Rave EDC and Payments,” said Manish Gupta, VP, Clinical Affairs, Cala Health.

Cala Health will gain end-to-end efficiency by streamlining internal, labor-intensive study steps with Medidata:

  • Edge eTMF: an end-to-end TMF management platform to manage all data and content

  • Rave EDC: to unify, manage and report all patient data

  • Edge Payments: to automatically trigger, calculate and disburse payments directly into a site’s bank account

“We’re thrilled Cala Health is partnering with Medidata for this landmark neurological device study,” said Glen de Vries, president and co-founder, Medidata. “Our unified platform eliminates operational burdens at medical device companies so they can streamline processes and focus on research.”
