Medrio’s web based Electronic Data Capture (EDC) Software for Clinical Research is now available without charge to universities. Through its Medrio Scholars program, Medrio's EDC software is now free for investigator initiated studies that are university and/or government funded.
"When researchers use Medrio at a university, they are much more likely to select Medrio in industry. They get a professional, fully validated, HIPAA and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant EDC tool for free," said Michael Farr, manager of Medrio Scholars, Medrio. "Getting a study database is as simple as visiting scholars.medrio.com and entering an email address."
Medrio's EDC software enables the collection and management of data for clinical trials, registries, retrospective studies and patient web surveys. University researchers can create and manage their clinical study data collection themselves, without programming.
Unlike other EDC offerings available to academic researchers, Medrio supports extensive study and data management tools, is fully validated and meets the requirements for electronic records and signatures (21 CFR Part 11), HIPAA and the European and Swiss Safe harbor frameworks.
"Medrio has been used successfully in Phase I-IV trials, registries, and other clinical studies by 12 of the top 20 global biopharmaceutical companies, and dozens of universities. We are proud to make it available now without charge for academic research," said Mike Novotny, CEO of Medrio.
