Comparing Medrio to Legacy EDC Platforms

In 2005, Medrio set out to move electronic data capture (EDC) in clinical trials to the cloud, and has been revolutionizing data collection ever since. Before that – and in many cases, still to this day – EDC users depended upon a custom database and high-priced programmers to build forms. Medrio’s platform frees up resources to keep you in control of timelines and costs. With a record of success spanning more than a decade, Medrio offers users both the stability of a legacy EDC system and the cutting-edge functionality that today’s clinical trials demand.

Here’s how:

  • Make mid-study changes quickly and easily, without taking your study offline or relying on technical support, and test them out before deploying to your sites.
  • Accelerate your processes with an intuitive and easy-to-use system.
  • Focus on your study – not managing complex software and expensive and confusing contracts. Our pricing is transparent and easy to understand and comes with industry-leading training and support.


Set up studies in days, not months

Cloud-based software eliminates headaches
