Medidata and Mapi Research Trust (MRT) Announce Strategic Collaboration to Standardize eCOA Global Library of Questionnaires


Medidata (NASDAQ: MDSO) and Mapi Research Trust today announced a new critical mission: to build a digital, global library of pre-configured and pre-approved eCOA (clinical outcomes assessment) questionnaires. The collaboration will create reusable versions of MRT distributed questionnaires in Medidata Rave eCOA, collecting COA data from hundreds of studies each year on the Medidata platform.

"This new collaboration with MRT will seek to solve two major eCOA implementation struggles that affect the pharmaceutical industry - the rework involved in building the same questionnaire in multiple studies for different sponsors, and the timelines required for deploying translated versions across global trials," said Glen de Vries, president, co-founder, Medidata. "MRT's licensing and author relationships, combined with Medidata's expertise and eCOA solution, will drive significant efficiencies in study management, empowering sponsors to create more patient-centric clinical trials."

The collaboration will allow Medidata and MRT to engage with instrument authors and study sponsors, resulting in questionnaires that are pre-approved, translated for global implementations, and archived for future use. Based on this innovative approach, the comprehensive new eCOA library will include:

"Industry timelines from kick-off to go-live for eCOA studies have long been stuck at 12 to 16 weeks, because of repeated efforts rebuilding the same forms and translations over and over for different studies," says Katrin Conway, Managing Director of Mapi Research Trust. "The Medidata and MRT global eCOA Library seeks to cut these timelines by as much as 50-60% by building a library of pre-approved questionnaires that Medidata customers on the Rave platform of products can use."
