- For clinical trial sites and data administrators, Rave Companion modernises the CDE user experience and prevents thousands of avoidable errors.
- Because Rave Companion enters EHR source data into Rave EDC with less typing and fewer errors, it improves data quality and can save monitoring expenses.
- The solution brings a patient’s medical record submission to Rave EDC by sitting between a facility’s EHR system and other healthcare data solutions.
The Rave Companion is a novel, scalable, patent-pending technology that enables clinical trial sites to transfer data more quickly and error-free from the EMR (Electronic Medical Record) to the Rave EDC (Electronic Data Capture, CDE) system. It was just announced by Medidata, a Dassault Systèmes company. By enabling structured and unstructured data from any electronic health record to be used directly by Rave EDC with just a few clicks, Rave Companion addresses the age-old industry problem of duplicate data entry.
” The number of data points collected as part of a clinical trial has increased exponentially, and centers are looking for scalable, easy-to-use solutions to connect to their EHR and reduce data entry”, ” Rave Companion is an elegant solution that helps centers use existing data from any EHR system instead of re-entering it for clinical trials,”
Dan Braga, Vice President of EHR Solutions and Medidata Health
More than 1.5 million life science professionals use Medidata’s market-leading platform to conduct more than 29,000 trials. When connected to Medidata’s extensive and quickly expanding network of research sites, Rave Companion offers comprehensive EHR integration capabilities as well as out-of-the-box functionality for unstructured data. The Rave Companion functions by reflecting the Rave eCRF schema in a “companion” tool that floats at the top of the screen and follows site visitors while they browse the many record-keeping systems necessary to contribute to the database.
The Rave EDC experience may travel with users when they visit their EHR or other healthcare systems to get the necessary patient data. Rave Companion removes “swivel chair” activities for unstructured data or for sites not yet connected to the Medidata network. Users no longer need to retype the value; instead, they need only click on it, and the eCRF will be filled in for them.
In order to keep the entire process in one location, Rave Companion will also include EHR data submission directly within the solution starting in 2019. This will eliminate the need for users to exit Rave EDC in order to complete eCRFs.
On November 15–16, Medidata’s premier life sciences conference, NEXT New York, will feature a presentation of the Rave Companion. During a session titled “Solving the EHR to EDC Challenge: A New Perspective, Approach, and Technology,” participants will discover how Medidata is addressing data entry difficulties. and Technology), along with Gene Vinson, Senior Director of EHR Solutions at Medidata, Dan Braga, and Samir Jain, Executive Director of Clinical Provider Management at Syneos Health.
A wholly owned subsidiary of Dassault Systèmes, Medidata is positioned to lead the digital transformation of the life sciences in the era of personalised medicine with the first all-encompassing scientific and commercial platform, from research to commercialization, thanks to its 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
