NEW YORK — Oct. 24, 2018 – Today at NEXT NYC, Medidata (NASDAQ: MDSO) announced that Pharm-Olam International (Pharm-Olam) signed a new, five-year enterprise agreement to unify operational systems supporting study execution on Medidata Cloud, the Intelligence Platform for Life Sciences.

Pharm-Olam previously used multiple systems and vendors, which led to duplicate data and silos requiring later integration. With Medidata, the global contract research organization (CRO) will empower sponsors to accelerate drug therapy time to market by providing a single, unified view of clinical trials to all stakeholders.

Only Medidata offers a one platform approach, which:

  • Creates a single repository for all trial data
  • Streamlines clinical operations for study teams
  • Leverages artificial intelligence and real-world data analytics to identify anomalies to drive better data quality and accelerate clinical insights

“After an exhaustive search, we selected Medidata because only their platform can unify all of our data and empower us to leapfrog the competition,” said David L. Grange, CEO, Pharm-Olam. “Medidata drives unmatched value for CROs across every part of clinical research. By leveraging Medidata’s best-in-class technology, we will reduce costs and provide superior solutions to our customers. It’s a win-win for us.”
