Aperio Adds Medidata Edge eTMF and CTMS in Expansion Agreement
February 13, 2018
Leading clinical research organization moves to the industry’s only unified platform to maximize efficiencies and outcomes
February 13, 2018 – NEW YORK – Aperio, a leading clinical research organization (CRO) formerly known as iNNO Clinical Outcomes, has expanded its use of the Medidata Clinical Cloud ® platform to include Edge eTMF and Edge CTMS, Medidata announced today. By unifying its CTMS and eTMF on the same platform, Aperio can unify its content, workflows and data for all aspects of its research – starting with study planning, all the way through study close.
The eTMF deal represents a replacement of one of Medidata’s important competitors, while the CTMS agreement is a replacement of Aperio’s own legacy CTMS system. This agreement also is an expansion of their earlier deployment of Rave Coder and Medidata Rave®,the world’s leading solution for capturing, managing and reporting patient data.
“We selected Medidata for our EDC, eTMF and CTMS solutions because we wanted a platform that could provide us a single source of truth with excellent reporting capabilities allowing us to provide transparency to our sponsors.” said Faye Woolf, CEO of Aperio. “Having a partnership with a technology company whose foundation is EDC was a critical factor. Medidata has systematically grown clinical software solutions around this great technology with proven processes for implementation.” On the relationship of Medidata and Aperio, Faye explained that “Corporately we’re new to the Medidata partnership, but our staff have been using it extensively for years with great success.”
Expanding the use of Medidata’s unified solutions will enable Aperio to streamline their clinical operations by managing all study data and documents in a single secure platform. Medidata’s Clinical Cloud, the industry’s leading unified platform, will enable Aperio to manage their entire end-to-end clinical process in a consistent and secure platform thereby accelerating clinical development while dramatically reducing their trial cost and risk.
“Aperio’s decision to add our eTMF and CTMS solutions to their platform is a reflection of the unique value that we are bringing to our customers and partners who recognize the importance of unifying those solutions on one platform,” said Michael Pray, executive vice president of global sales at Medidata. “CROs are facing more pressure than ever to quickly start up their studies and effectively manage the trial process. If an organization has CTMS and wishes to add eTMF capabilities, or vice versa, the smartest approach is to unify both on a single platform to achieve these goals.”
