ENCINITAS, Calif., November 1, 2016 – nPhase, Inc., developer of the most widely used EDC platform for academic, commercial and non-profit organizations, REDCap Cloud EDC, announced today that REDCap Cloud EDC has been approved as a partner in the development program for MedDRA, one of the most widely used dictionaries for clinical trials. REDCap Cloud will support all versions of the MedDRA dictionary and in conjunction with other industry standard dictionaries (SNOMED and RxNorm) will enhance the ability of clients to quickly and easily code terms in their studies for quick and accurate analysis.
“We are pleased to be part of the MedDRA development program”, stated Scott Climes, CEO of nPhase. “Along with our support of CDISC standards, REDCap Cloud EDC has adopted and is supporting industry standards for both commercial studies and the studies conducted by academic and non-profit organizations. Our goal is to bridge the gap between commercial, academic and non-profit organizations with a world class application that will support all types of clinical studies, and acceptance of global standards supports our achieving that goal”.
REDCap Cloud EDC is designed to transform clinical research for the life science industry by offering a cost-effective eClinical platform that enables Sponsors, CROs, investigators, and research teams to collaborate around the world, and to transform patient care in a faster, better, and more cost-effective manner.
ICH endeavors to provide a single standardized international medical terminology which can be used for regulatory communication and evaluation of data pertaining to medicinal products for human use. As a result, MedDRA is designed for use in the registration, documentation and safety monitoring of medicinal products through all phases of the development cycle (i.e., from clinical trials to post-marketing surveillance). Furthermore, MedDRA supports ICH electronic communication within the ICH’s Electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD) and the E2B Individual Case Safety Report. ICH is continuously pursuing the development and maintenance of MedDRA for improving the effectiveness and transparency of medical product regulation which in turn contributes to the global protection of public health.
