cloud-based edc - medidata rave

Leading and specialty CROs across the industry use Rave with their clients. Medidata's industry-leading Services Partner program helps CROs bring the best technology to their clinical development activities.

Rave is:

  • Flexible. Don’t twist your processes to fit technology limitations.  Rave flexibility accommodates your workflow requirements.  Make mid-study changes—including adaptive trials, protocol amendments and updated requirements—easily with no system downtime. Rave manages multiple case report form (CRF) editions and seamlessly migrates existing data into new forms and structures.
  • Scalable. Rave’s cloud-native architecture scales from one study to hundreds, and from Phase-I all the way to global Phase-IV. Whatever your trial phase or business growth, one cloud system is all you need.
  • Configurable. Simple or complex study requirements, Rave handles them all without custom programming. Easily configure CRFs, workflows, data blinding, source document verification (SDV) requirements, dictionary coding and more. All via a point-and-click browser interface.
