Medidata Rave Engage Wins Scrip Award for Best Sponsor-Focused Technological Development in Clinical Trials

  • Rave Engage Named Top Technology for Sponsors at 14th Annual Scrip Awards

  • Medidata Wins Prestigious Industry Award  for Third Consecutive Year

  • Scrip Award Celebrates Innovation and Excellence in Biopharmaceutical Industry

NEW YORK - Nov. 30, 2018  Medidata (NASDAQ:MDSO) is pleased to announce that Rave Engage was recognized at the 2018 Scrip Awards as the "Best Technological Development in Clinical Trials - Tech Sponsor Focused." This marks the third consecutive Scrip Award win for the company.

Medidata Rave Engage is an intuitive web-based application that serves as the patient-facing interface for virtual trials and hybrid studies that seek to reduce physical site visits. Patients remain engaged throughout the study with what Medidata calls the “Trial Dial,” which enables sponsors to choose the right balance of site-based and virtual visits. Through Rave Engage, sponsors and investigators improve operational efficiency, scalability, and patient recruitment and retention—all of which result in better data and lower trial costs.

Presented to Medidata at the 14th Annual Scrip Awards on November 28, 2018 in London, the award celebrates excellence and innovation in the biopharmaceutical industry and a continued commitment to improving healthcare on a global scale. A panel of judges—comprised of independent, senior industry experts from around the world—evaluated a record number of submissions across a wide range of categories, announcing a shortlist of finalists earlier this year.

“Medidata Rave Engage improves the entire patient and sponsor experience with clinical trial virtualization,” said Anthony Costello, vice president, mHealth, Medidata. “Modern clinical trials, especially large-scale trials, need to be more efficiently run and convenient for patients. We believe that virtual and hybrid trials, made possible by Rave Engage and the Medidata platform, are the future of clinical research.”

Rave Engage currently powers a number of virtual studies for global pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, including the well-publicized aspirin study, ADAPTABLE—the largest virtual trial ever conducted, with an enrollment target of 15,000 patients. With the Rave Engage platform, ADAPTABLE patients are virtually enrolled, consented, and randomized to provide their own reported outcome throughout the study with no physical site visits.
