One of our favorite things to see, here at Medrio, is a customer combining our eClinical offerings with their own savvy and ingenuity to enhance their operations and overcome challenges. So when Atlantic Research Group, a CRO and longtime Medrio customer, used our application programming interface (API) to integrate Medrio’s EDC with the interactive response technology (IRT) solution provided by Veracity Logic, we wanted to know more. What was the challenge that ARG faced, and how did the integration allow them to solve it?
We spoke with both ARG and Veracity Logic to learn more about their experience conducting an integration with our API. They had a lot to say, and after extensive conversation, a story began to emerge; we saw this as an opportunity to produce a case study offering an in-depth look at the challenges at hand, how ARG found a solution, and what that solution enabled them to do. The case study also profiles the three parties involved – ARG, Medrio, and Veracity Logic – and discusses the philosophy behind Medrio’s investment in API development. We’re honored to have been of service to an innovative CRO like ARG, and to have been able to produce this case study as a testament to their success. You can read the case study on our website.
The API that ARG utilized is one of three that Medrio offers. These tools allow users to access the many types of software of use to the clinical research industry today. The three APIs include:
- Export: Researchers can use this API to send clinical- and study configuration-level data out of Medrio and into an external system.
- Import: This API allows external systems to submit transactional CDISC ODM files and their data into Medrio. It is exposed as a web service.
- Events: When an event occurs, such as the addition of a new subject to a study, our events-based API sends data through an API listener and into an external database.
The integrations performed via these APIs enable customers to establish a two-way flow of data between Medrio’s EDC and a third-party software. In doing so, they also allow Medrio to provide access to the functionalities of a multitude of eClinical tools without having to devote energy to developing those functionalities natively. With our time and resources thus freed up, we can direct our efforts elsewhere: toward continuing to develop a top-tier EDC for clinical trials of all phases. The APIs take care of the rest.
