The global biopharmaceutical company will leverage multiple solutions within the Medidata Clinical Cloud platform, including: Medidata Rave®, Medidata Coder®, Safety Gateway, and Medidata TSDV. UCB plans to use Medidata’s mHealth solution for electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePRO) on a study-by-study basis.

“UCB’s patient-led, science-driven research and development is making a meaningful difference in people’s lives, and Medidata is proud to provide the technology and analytical insights to propel its R&D efforts,” said Mike Capone, Medidata’s chief operating officer.
