Partnerships Make Us Even Stronger


FMD K&L is a Medidata Services Partner.

Through this world‐class partnership, we are able to provide services that leverage Medidata's innovative solutions to optimize Sponsors' clinical trials. FMD K&L offers comprehensive clinical trial design in conjunction with Medidata Rave EDC implementation services; as a result, Sponsors can expect a faster start for clinical trials, efficient cleaning of the clinical trial data, and faster lock of the clinical database with better clinical data quality.  

Power and Simplicity at the Heart of the Clinical Trial

With Medidata's Rave intuitive web‐interface, multiple lingual capabilities, and combined EDC and paper capture features, FMD K&L can help Sponsors meet even the most rigorous trial requirements by recruiting sites and participants based on clinical needs ‐ not system requirements.

Data Capture and Data Cleaning is One Process - Not Two

Unlike traditional approaches, which separate the collection and management of clinical data, FMD K&L's Medidata RAVE EDC implementation services can make data capture and data cleaning a single, streamlined process.  This reduces risk and improves efficiency throughout a study by eliminating the need for data reconciliation and the expense of managing separate systems. With all data captured and managed in the same system, reliable clinical data is available earlier in the research process instead of waiting until all data is locked.  This allows researchers to have clean data available in real time throughout a study.

Industry Leading Ease of Use

Medidata RAVE EDC is designed to be intuitive to clinicians, trial monitors, and data managers with friendly and consistent point‐and‐click navigation and a familiar clinical data entry approach. Sponsors can recruit sites and investigators based on their clinical needs and skills, not computer knowledge and usage, to meet the requirements of today's clinical trials, including large‐scale registries and surveillance studies.

Medidata Rave's web-enabled interface works equally well on an Apple® computer or a Windows® PC, with the range of popular Internet browsers, including all versions of Internet Explorer®, Firefox®, and Safari®. Sponsors save the time and expense of provisioning and supporting specific hardware and software at sites, and only need to conduct simple assessments during site recruitment.

Multiple Trials, Multiple Languages - Single System

As organizations expand their participation in global trials, Medidata Rave lets users work in their language of choice, all within a single system.  Full support for international (double‐byte) character sets and concurrent usage in multiple languages provides capabilities for multi‐national trials.

Paper and Paper / EDC Studies - Single System

FMD K&L's EDC implementation services use of Medidata Rave also offers the flexibility to conduct paper and paper / EDC clinical trials within a single system. With high‐speed double‐data entry, information captured in a paper‐based clinical trial can be managed in a single database with data collected electronically.
