An End-to-End eClinical Data Management Platform

Supporting Preclinical to Post-Market Studies

Prelude makes electronic case report forms (eCRFs) look and feel like paper, making the data collection process seamless. Our unique architecture enables users to design forms that fit their specific study needs rather than adjusting their processes to accommodate the limitations of their system.

EDC

Prelude’s electronic data capture (EDC) system is a web-based application designed for clinical trial data collection while maintaining regulatory compliance.

Why do Researchers Choose Prelude?

Make Investigators’ Lives Easier

Prelude was built with end-user input, resulting in an intuitive interface and breadth of edit checks and calculations to help make the site experience seamless – which is why we are considered the investigator’s preferred EDC.

Say Yes More to Custom Design Requests

For the first 15 years, Prelude custom built each database, focusing on large complex studies. Over time, the flexibility developed has been harnessed in a seamless study builder to accommodate all phases, including preclinical.

Prelude Becomes an Extension of Your Team

Our project managers (PM) provide support ranging from hands-on training to complete study build and maintenance. When you need help, reach out to your dedicated PM – not a call center.

Collect Clinical Data Directly From Patients

With Prelude ePRO, patients can download our app and enter data directly from their mobile device in a compliant manner. They also receive push notifications each time clinical data is needed. Auto reminders make patient compliance management simple and hands-off.

Improve Quality at an Affordable Rate

Prelude is a 21 CFR Part 11, Annex 11, ICH GCP, HIPAA, and GDPR compliant database used across 100s of clinical studies across the Americas and Europe. We offer the flexibility of a Medidata Rave with a price point more in-line with a standard EDC system.

Raising the bar on the clinical research experience

“I have worked with several EDC systems over the past 25 years, and Prelude EDC is superior to all.”

“One database for everything – regulatory, EDC, Invoicing, etc. Plus, it sends notifications of queries!”

“All EDCs are intimidating for a newbie, but Prelude EDC has one of the lowest learning curves of commercial EDC products.”

“The database overall is just lovely – innovative, convenient, and way more advanced and efficient than I am used to as a coordinator.”
