Chiltern and Medidata Mark 10-Year Anniversary Milestone in Bringing Cloud-based Technology to Clinical Development

June 13, 2017

WILMINGTON, N.C., and NEW YORK, N.Y. – June 13, 2017 – Medidata (NASDAQ: MDSO), the leading global provider of cloud-based technology and data analytics for clinical research, and Chiltern, a leading global contract research organization (CRO), today announced an anniversary milestone in their strategic partnership.

The two organizations have been working together for 10 years to deliver world-class clinical development services to Chiltern’s broad customer base via the Medidata Clinical Cloud®.

Known for its collaborative approach designed around its clients, Chiltern offers comprehensive programs and functional service provisions (FSP) to the global pharmaceutical, biotechnology and device markets. The organization has deep experience in oncology, dermatology, endocrine and metabolic, gastroenterology, respiratory, ophthalmology and neuroscience, among others — enabling its 4,300+ staff to fold unique therapeutic expertise into its wide range of clinical development and data and analytics services.

In its 35 years of operations, Chiltern has spent the last decade bolstering its R&D and scientific expertise with Medidata’s unified technology platform. Chiltern joined Medidata’s Partner Program in 2007, when it became accredited in Medidata’s industry-leading electronic data capture, management and reporting tool, Medidata Rave®. Since then, Chiltern has continued to increase its use of the Medidata platform, further enhancing its innovative research programs with accreditations across Medidata’s portfolio of integrated solutions, including: Medidata Coder®, Medidata Balance®, Medidata TSDV, Safety Gateway and Medidata Patient Cloud®. Today, Chiltern has over 130 Rave-certified builders on staff and has built over 750 studies on the Medidata platform.

“As the global life sciences landscape continues to evolve, it’s important that Chiltern aligns itself with innovative technology partners that have the agility, scale and insight to meet the most rigorous aspects of clinical development today—from real-time analytics to risk-based monitoring, biometrics and pharmacovigilance. Medidata is one of those partners,” said Mark Penniston, Chiltern’s executive vice president, clinical analytics, and general manager. “Leveraging Medidata’s end-to-end platform has enabled us to effectively allocate study resources, standardize data and seamlessly integrate clinical and operational information across our customers’ global R&D programs. We’ve spent the past 10 years helping our customers drive clinical success on the Medidata Clinical Cloud, and we look forward to many more.”

“Medidata’s extensive partnership with Chiltern reflects our shared commitment to marrying cutting-edge technology, data-driven processes and scientific excellence to develop better therapies for patients,” said Mike Capone, Medidata chief operating officer. “Chiltern is a collaborative organization driving personalized R&D programs for its global customers, and as Chiltern’s cloud platform of choice, we’re proud to provide them with the tools and techniques needed to ensure clinical data quality, study accuracy and operational speed. We look forward to further strengthening our partnership and celebrating the continued success of our customers’ medical advancements together.”

Chiltern was the winner of Medidata’s inaugural “Architect of Hope” Award in 2016, an award in recognition of the CRO’s successful partnership with a major biopharmaceutical company. The organization will continue to use Medidata’s study conduct solutions and patient engagement tools in a number of its upcoming studies, as well as tap into Medidata’s latest mobile health (mHealth) offering, Medidata Enroll, for electronic informed consent.
