"We've tried and tested many EDC platforms and are confident that the systems we've selected offer outstanding features, flexibility and value for money."


EDC is fast becoming the industry standard for clinical study data collection, so to ensure we can provide the right platform for your project, we will make a recommendation from a choice of two leading EDC systems as well as a third in-house system that has been developed specifically for Phase IV studies.

We know that choosing the right EDC platform is an important project component, and different projects require different solutions. Business & Decision Life Sciences tested and appraised 15 commercial systems before selecting Medidata and Medrio to recommend to our clients. To ensure that we can provide EDC at the best possible cost and with comprehensive support, Business & Decision Life Sciences has entered into partnering agreements with both Medidata and Medrio.

Electronic Data Capture

Business & Decision Life Sciences Data Managers are fully trained on both platforms and able to recommend the most appropriate system for your study. Please contact us and we will be happy to further discuss your requirements.


Medidata Rave is the industry leading system for capturing, managing and reporting clinical research data. A single platform supporting both EDC and clinical data management systems functionality, Medidata Rave has the design flexibility to support unique aspects of individual clinical trials.

Roles and responsibilities across study teams can be defined and administered centrally and workflows are user-configurable. Medidata Rave allows for sophisticated eCRF design, simple and complex edit checking, customisable security and access parameters and integration of other data sources.



Medrio is a fully hosted, integrated eClinical software platform that reduces study timelines and costs by putting clinical study teams in control of their studies.

All data is accessed in real-time by the roles that are assigned with specific privileges. Data capture can be observed directly through field monitoring and with the addition of iPad support, improve clinical trial productivity. All the while data integrity is controlled with range checks and custom queries that fire as data is entered.
