Medrio offers free EDC Software to university researchers

Medrio, a US-based integrated eClinical software manufacturer, is offering its web-based Electronic Data Capture (EDC) Software for Clinical Research to universities under its Medrio Scholars program.

The firm claims that the EDC software helps researchers to freely initiate studies, which are funded by university and/or government.

With the new EDC software, university researchers can collect and manage clinical trials data, registries, retrospective studies, and patient web surveys.

The software also allows researchers to create and manage their clinical study data collection themselves, without programming.

Medrio CEO Mike Novotny said, “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.”

With its wide study and data management tools, the company claims that the software will fully validate and meet the requirements for electronic records and signatures (21 CFR Part 11), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the European and Swiss Safe harbor frameworks.
