Medidata Expands Partnership with BeiGene to use Medidata's Patient Cloud ePRO Solution

Expanded Partnership Includes Medidata Patient Cloud ePRO to Seamlessly Collect Patient-Centric Data and Automate Manual Processes for Oncology Research

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Medidata (NASDAQ:MDSO), the leading global provider of cloud-based technology and data analytics for clinical research, today announced that BeiGene, Ltd., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative molecularly targeted and immuno-oncology drugs for the treatment of cancer, will expand its use of the Medidata Clinical Cloud® to further digitize patient reporting for its oncology research studies.

BeiGene will leverage Medidata's integrated platform to feed eSource Patient Reported Outcome data from Medidata's Patient Cloud ePRO directly into Medidata Rave®. This infusion of patient recorded outcome data will enable improved operational efficiency, reduced transcription errors and reconciliation issues, and decreased data quality risk plans.

"Over the past two years, Medidata has proven to be a key technology partner for BeiGene, with its industry-leading solutions and hands-on approach to our integration needs. By automating paper-based procedures and centralizing patient data on the Medidata platform, we're able to collaborate globally on our oncology research."

As part of its expanded partnership with Medidata, BeiGene also plans to standardize the collection and management of safety cases through Medidata Safety Gateway®, a secure, configurable electronic transmission interface between EDC and safety systems. The partnership between BeiGene and Medidata also includes Medidata Coder®, a cloud application that is designed to streamline and centralize medical coding to perform oncology research studies.

"Medidata is proud to be accelerating technology advancement at every level and interaction within the life sciences industry," said Kara Dennis, Managing Director of Mobile Health at Medidata. "We've created an environment that is agile, globally collaborative, and in line with the digital and mobile needs of biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, all from one unified cloud platform. BeiGene's forward-thinking technology approach will enable faster study builds and centralized control over patient data, facilitating the evaluation of its portfolio compounds."
