Clindata tackles complex animal health studies with Medrio
Jaco Kasselman explains how Medrio’s EDC system helps him build strong relationships with sponsors through real-time data entry and cloud-based collaboration.
I would recommend making use of Medrio if you’re considering moving over to EDC because it’s easy to to configure a database. You do not need to be a programmer to build a form or program a rule because it’s really just setting up your preferences rather than programming a query the study is always ready for review and data is always available for the sponsor to review. Once the researcher is done in that lab the data is entered they don’t need to go back to their desk, transcribe data into a system. At Clindata since we’re mostly involved in animal studies we have a nice library available that we built and maintain so we have the set of data collection forms designed once there’s a new data collection form template created we’ll just create that in the system again for our database setup, if that long. We’re really excited about the eSource tool that made real release that that’s really nice tool to use for a field study set up when there is no data connectivity and the guys go out to the field with their tablet they can enter data and once they’re back online the data will push through to the server. What stands out in made real for us in animal health is the multiple subject data entry tool and that was adapted so much that it was fully functional for the animal health sector. We’re very pleased to have Medrio support. When we have a ticket locked into the system I can I know that I can escalate it or contact our representative and she’ll immediately make sure that it’s escalated and attended to. So even due to the different time zones I know I can call somebody it’s really quick efficient study site the data management is easy we know the reports will include everything.
Abhinav Jain explains why Medrio EDC is a special blend of ease-of-use, affordability, and cutting-edge product features.
The first time I encountered Medrio, I thought the ease-of-use is great it checks all the boxes affordability, ease-of-use, user friendliness. Earlier when I used to work with EDC’s and the other products that we use it was like you have to choose two out of those either affordability, ease of use, or user friendliness, but Medrio I think does all three in other EDC’s it’s like when you approach them with an issue its like, get a ticket and wait (chuckle) but with Medrio we get that personalized touch, I think the people on the phone they like when ever we talk to a person I think they are a technical person they are able to really get to the crux of the problem very quickly whenever we have pointed out any I wouldn’t say issue but a certain requirement that we particularly haveand probably their other customers don’thave but Medrio has been very responsive. When we are still using paper then we came to like a CRO set up and we were utilizing that kind of setup we took it for granted that to like to start a study from scratch it will take you around a month/two months before because of all that communication backand forth through the CROs but with Medrio we felt that all those steps get cut out. We get all the benefits we don’t get the pain like maintaining a server and someone who has to do IT and everything a whole new department has to like cater to us that bit is not a requirement with Medrio.
