I've been using Medrio for at least six years so I work with some other databases and the deployment can take several days if not longer just depending upon a company's structure with Medrio. You create the forms and there's changes, as long as you validate the changes and you can you have something in live production very, very quickly as long as the Data Manager is able to encompass all that is needed for a clinical trial and is able to validate those specific forms or changes the other departments don't necessarily have to have a critical key component in that workflow so I've had mid-study changes before in the past and it would involve our IT department to create certain scripts to get involved with the database to an extent in which they didn't necessarily want to but what was required for here again for Medrio that involvement isn't necessary we can easily map out the variables that you need easily map out the query structure the form structure any particular form rule so it's very expedient when it comes to saving time so quickest Medrio study build I would say approximately four days I had some questions on how to upload data in a horizontal format and I reached out to Medrio and they were able to provide me an answer within one day so my favorite major feature is the data upload and bulk upload features I have been able to move data from one resource into another location and talking about large complex voluminous datasets and the bulk upload and data upload features have allowed me to save a lot of time also the certification at Medrio. Some systems will just give you a flash or a PowerPoint presentation but I know for Medrio certification I went through several training videos that were in depth in detail and I really enjoyed those videos in that they gave me more confidence and a different perspective from other systems that I've used I work with Medrio for quite a number of years when it comes to build speed in time they are very excellent and when it comes to a support, customer support to me it's parallel to none.

Medrio helped Quidel get away from paper
Michele Harden describes how she is creating diagnostics studies faster and easier through a cloud-based EDC. Transcript:
We were originally doing paper studies then we came across Medrio, it was night and day difference as far as how quickly you could develop your forms and your structure and go from you know nothing to ready to deploy and it's pretty intuitive too so it didn't take a long time to figure out how to make the forms the thing that stands out to me about Medrio is its ease of use it is it is quick to be able to go from looking at your protocol to developing your forms and be ready to deploy in very little time. I can have the forms built in just a couple of days give it to the team for testing and we're live in about a week. Each site enters their own data in regarding their site and we also have labs entering their data as well so all this data is coming in from all these different sources and it's coming in real-time so you can see how your study's doing you can see are we on target or are we going to have to maybe do an amendment do we have to look at something else. I like the feature where you can take the paperwork sheet forms and attach them right there and Medrio oh so that the PDF becomes part of the record for that subject. The customer service people if you have a question they're on the phone they quickly and easily lead you through how to get through wherever you're stuck and where else are you going to get that kind of service? People from Medrio came to our office to give myself and my boss and several people from our lab training and how to use the system. It was convenient it was right there in our office we didn't have to go anywhere and we could give them use situations that we would perceive for our particular studies this is easy, it is fast, and it's reasonably priced.

Hollister Incorporated increases volume of device studies with Medrio
Sally Urwin shows how short-term device studies are a breeze on Medrio EDC. Transcript:
Hollister is a device company and our mission is to make life more dignified and rewarding for the customers who use their products so we do lots of studies that are short-term studies for device products and we do numerous studies per year Hollister Incorporated has been using Medrio since 2013. Medrio allows the flexibility and ease of programming our own studies configuring our own studies in Medrio so, therefore, we don't use outside consultants very often anymore our programmers for configuring our studies that allows my company to save money and time. Medrio is very quick to go live I've found that I can get my study built and tested and go live within a few weeks. Medrio allows us the ability to capture data in a lot of different ways whether it's directly at a desktop or a site using Medrio at a bedside or our use of the ePRO platform that we can capture outcomes directly from our research participants we love that flexibility and the ability to capture data in a safe secure cloud-based environment that keeps us compliant with regulations and GCP. I love the ability to copy from an old study and pull over my variables and study design from an old study if I have a similar study design it makes my build so much quicker also the pricing structure in Medrio is really helpful to us because we do many many short-term studies through that year and Medrio is an affordable option for us compared to other EDCs I would say one of the things I really appreciated about Medrio is although I've been a Data Manager for many many years when I started using Medrio I was able to go through a quick training process the training for Medrio was concise but really comprehensive and immediately after getting my initial training in Medrio I was able to start configuring my studies I think what I appreciate most about Medrio is I feel valued as a customer they have fantastic support online documentation and live support. Online there's a lot of opportunity to learn and find your resolutions online but whenever I've needed live support they're there for me I get an immediate response and they're really helpful they follow up quickly so we get away from paper we get away from that extra time needed to do the data entry. Our sites love that!
