PhaseBio Pharma Becomes Medidata’s 1,000th Customer, Making Company First in Industry to Achieve This Milestone

Innovative Biotech Company Adopts Medidata Rave EDC, Benefiting From a Unified Platform for All Phases of the Study

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 17, 2018-- Biotech company, PhaseBio Pharmaceuticals, has become Medidata’s (NASDAQ:MDSO) 1,000th customer. Medidata is the first and only eClinical company to achieve this milestone. PhaseBio intends to use the Medidata Clinical Cloud® for the initial Phase I study of its newest clinical development program for treatment of an orphan cardiopulmonary disease.

PhaseBio is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to developing improved biotherapeutics for the treatment of orphan diseases, with an initial focus on cardiopulmonary indications. Like many smaller, innovative life science companies, PhaseBio chose to partner with Medidata due to its unified eClinical platform, which drives better science and business through all phases of a study.

“We have a very good understanding of our entire program beginning with Phase I all the way through Phase III, and know ahead of time that we plan to start as a single site in Phase I, and rapidly expand as a global program,” said John Lee, chief medical officer at PhaseBio. “Medidata Rave EDC has the capability to scale with us, thanks to their robust data management platform, which means that we would be able to monitor multiple studies in parallel and potentially merge data sets as needed from these studies in order to support a streamlined development plan leading to approval when we arrive at that stage.”
