Perth-Based Linear Clinical Research Selects Medrio for First Adoption of EDC

Linear Clinical Research, a research company based in Perth, Australia, has selected Medrio, a Software as a Service (SaaS) company providing cutting-edge electronic data capture (EDC) services to clinical trials, as their data management solution for their research. Medrio is the first EDC tool the researchers at Linear have used as the company transitions from paper-only clinical trials. The decision came at the end of a meticulous and comprehensive vendor selection process in which Linear evaluated a total of 74 EDC vendors.

Several factors contributed to the decision at Linear to utilize Medrio for their initial investment in EDC. Linear’s research team notes that the simplicity, agility, and user-friendliness of Medrio’s software has played a major role in easing their transition away from paper, allowing researchers with little to no EDC background to quickly become comfortable and fluent in the technology. Medrio’s training services were of particular utility to the researchers at Linear as they got their first study in Medrio up and running. In addition, Linear and Medrio are united by their specialization in the early phases of clinical research: Linear is the only research facility in Western Australia focused primarily on early phase clinical trials, and Medrio is the eClinical industry leader for the early phases.

With their partnership with Linear, Medrio is strengthening its foothold in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region, which has emerged in recent years as a hub of clinical research. Australia, in particular, has earned substantial attention from clinical trial sponsors due to its favorable regulations, cost efficiency, and reduced approval timelines. APAC countries where Medrio has provided its services include China, Japan, South Korea, and others.

“Australia is an attractive destination for clinical research, but we have to maintain our position as the most desirable and innovative clinical trial destination in the world,” commented Dr. Michael Winlo, CEO of Linear Clinical Research. “This is why Linear is making a substantial investment to support EDC.”

Dr. Winlo notes than transitioning from paper-only studies to EDC studies will allow his team to:

  •     Quicken the process of drug development
  •     Be more quickly alerted to adverse events, reducing the risk of harm or illness to subjects and patients
  •     Improve patient engagement efforts by allowing patients to track trial data themselves
  •     Improve data accuracy
  •     Localize forms so that patients can read information in their own language

“Trials are getting larger and more complicated and there is more competition among drug companies who bring their therapies to market faster than ever before,” commented Medrio founder and CEO Mike Novotny. “This technology can speed up the whole process.”

Since their first study in Medrio went live, the feedback from Linear has been positive. “The system has not faltered once,” noted Simone Knab, Head of Clinical Operations at Linear. “It’s been so easy and user-friendly.”
