Novotech and Medidata expand partnership to continue advancements in clinical research
SINGAPORE, June 16, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Leading Asia-Pacific biotech specialist CRO Novotech and Medidata renew 
partnership, further expanding services to Novotech clients in APAC and the US

Medidata, a Dassault Systèmes company, today announced its renewed, expanded 
partnership with Novotech, a leading contract research organisation (CRO), to 
continue scaling clinical studies in various therapeutic areas from 2022.

Leveraging Rave EDC, Rave RTSM, eCOA and eConsent technology from Medidata, 
Novotech is equipped with flexible, configurable tools that can address 
clinical research needs at scale and facilitate accelerated drug and device 
development in Asia Pacific and the U.S.

Since its partnership in 2018, Novotech has doubled its growth and has also 
acquired CRO companies in APAC and the U.S. as well as invested in advanced DCT 
and data companies to deliver a seamless CRO platform amidst the increasing 
demand for clinical trials services in the region. The partnership extends 
access to a suite of end-to-end solutions from Medidata Clinical Cloud 
(, the 
industry's only unified platform dedicated to clinical research. It also 
underscores Medidata and Novotech's commitment to work collaboratively towards 
accelerating clinical trials and research efficiently, while improving clinical 
trial timelines and patient experiences.

The Medidata Clinical Cloud is the only unified technology platform dedicated 
to clinical research, with solutions that leverage centralized data to address 
the holistic research process from start to finish. With the physical 
limitations and fragmentation of healthcare ecosystems caused by the COVID-19 
pandemic, the need for digital integration for accelerated clinical development 
is crucial, and a unified platform allows for streamlined management of 
studies, sites, users, and access from a single location.

Edwin Ng, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific, Medidata, commented, "The 
pandemic has underscored the importance of redesigning how trials are run, with 
more stakeholders realising the vital role that technology plays in clinical 
development. Medidata is pleased to continue our strong partnership with 
Novotech and is dedicated to providing support in their acceleration of 
clinical studies. Working with leading technologies, we can deliver better 
patient experiences and accelerate drug development in the new normal in 
clinical research." 

Andries Claassen, Senior Director Biometrics, Novotech, added, "We are excited 
to continue our partnership with Medidata, with their sustained support in 
driving clinical research and business growth with customers. Novotech has 
always invested heavily in the latest technology to provide our clients with 
better data visibility for improved decision-making. Together, we will help 
sponsors deliver more efficient, effective, and scalable trials."
