Medidata Rave® is a web-based clinical data management system used for capturing, managing, and reporting clinical research data. It enables the user to record patient information (ie, visit, lab, and adverse event data) using forms that are customized for each study.
Key features of Medidata Rave include:
The NCI Cancer Therapy and Evaluation Program (CTEP) has purchased licensing rights from Medidata Solutions (Medidata) to use and distribute Medidata Rave to facilitate clinical research throughout the NCI-supported clinical research enterprise. The NCI has mandated that all cooperative groups standardize the implementation of Medidata Rave to the greatest extent possible; the overarching goal is to give sites a uniform experience with a similar look and feel across all cooperative group studies.
The NCI CTEP program was officially launched on April 1, 2011. The ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group began using Medidata Rave in Spring 2012, when it launched the E2410 study.
