seamlessly navigate between its Phase I-III clinical trial data and PMS
data in a single, unified system.
Yoshiaki Ohashi, vice president, head of quality & regulatory compliance

Chugai to shorten our lead times by about 50% and scale to any
surveillance size, which is why we selected the globally-validated
Medidata platform for our programs. In combining Medidata's enhanced
technology and vast experience in clinical research optimization, we

accessibility around key safety issues.
"We're pleased to further our relationship with Chugai, a strong player
in the global pharmaceuticals market that is pursuing innovative drug
candidates to benefit the medical community worldwide," said Takeru
Yamamoto, managing director of APAC. "Post-market surveillance is an
incredibly important aspect of drug development, providing real-world
data to further inform the safety of therapies after the clinical trial
process. As the cornerstone of the Medidata Clinical Cloud, RaveX is
helping Chugai get the real-world data and actionable insights they
need, accurately and quickly—optimizing their overall research
investments and delivering more value to patients. We're proud to
provide the industry with best-in-class technology to work more
