Edge is supported by the Rave family of products, the most comprehensive data capture and management solution, and is powered by Medidata Enterprise Data Store (MEDS) and AI. Rave allows sponsors to capture, manage and explore site, lab, imaging, genomic, app and sensor data, and real world data. Together, they comprise the Medidata Clinical Cloud®, which is the unified platform of choice for clinical operations and data management.

In a recent survey conducted by Medidata, life science decision makers and users identified the capabilities necessary to deliver the next generation of clinical trials, including EDC and risk based monitoring (RBM).

The top criteria for EDC are: price, (24%); integration (23%); robustness of features (18%); intuitiveness of software (18%); and database build speed (17%). Medidata’s Rave EDC is ranked as the top solution across all criteria.
