Company Celebrates Third Consecutive Informa CARE Award Win

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 27, 2018-- Medidata (NASDAQ: MDSO) is pleased to announce that its risk based monitoring solution, Edge Strategic Monitoring, won an Informa Clinical and Research Excellence (CARE) Award, marking the third consecutive year the company earned this distinction. The CARE Awards acknowledge and applaud the pharmaceutical industry’s outstanding innovators across all areas of the industry, recognizing both corporate and individual achievements.

Medidata Edge Strategic Monitoring was selected in the “Best Sponsor-focused Technological Development” category. Available as part of the Medidata Clinical Cloud®, Medidata Edge Strategic Monitoring is the first and only end-to-end solution that combines advanced anomaly detection, powered by machine learning algorithms, with centralized issue management. The solution helps find known and unknown risks and take action in real-time.
