“Our collaboration with Medidata will not only ease the management of images during clinical drug trials—it will enhance our analytical rigor, enabling our teams to extract high-quality imaging biomarkers for better study and patient outcomes,” said Jeanne Hecht, Median Technologies’ Chief Operating Officer. “Medidata’s imaging technology provides us with complementary capabilities to fulfill the unique R&D needs of our growing customer-base in Europe, Asia and the US. We’re dedicated to helping biopharmaceutical companies make more informed decisions to quickly bring new cancer therapies to market, and are thrilled to partner with Medidata to aid in those efforts.”
Medidata Medical Imaging provides superior workflow management and flexibility of image resources, working seamlessly with proprietary technologies like Median. The collaboration will provide Median with the highest level of control and access to image data and performance metrics, while enabling automatic edit checks and de-identification.
“We are excited about our collaboration with Median, an organization that is setting the gold standard for diagnosing disease, developing new therapies and treating patients through the use of medical images,” said Mike Capone, Medidata’s chief operating officer. “Medidata considers the entire image management process, turning the challenge of this growing data source into a new opportunity for workflow intelligence, and we look forward to providing Median with the technology platform needed to make significant discoveries in the oncology space.”
