End users who were formerly disintermediated from their data and had to rely on clinical programming teams for high quality analyses and reporting gain self-service access to curated data sets, saving both time and money. A detailed ROI model is available demonstrating how elluminate saves costs based on the products utilized and the number of ongoing and archived studies included.
Is it hard to use?
elluminate is easy to use and is designed with the workflow of data management, clinical operations, and medical review of biostatistics in mind. The primary objective of elluminate Mapper is to make data integration and mapping easier for non-programmers. Data Central is designed for significantly more efficient and automated data review by data managers and medical monitors. The visualizations in elluminate Clinical Analytics are intuitive and flexible, linking to issue workflow so teams can act upon data insights in real-time.

Will this work with my existing platforms?
elluminate is a flexible platform that fits within existing clinical technology ecosystems. As a clinical data hub, elluminate is designed for rapid data integration. elluminate gracefully coexists with many other eclinical platforms and has an out of the box, two-way integration with the Medidata Clinical Cloud. Data from many other systems including MDR, EDC, safety, eCOA, IVR, Labs, Omics, Biomarkers, eSource and physiological sensors have been successfully integrated into elluminate. Clients can also leverage elluminate for external data sources and combine that with EDC data for analytics and review, as well as data exploration and curation via Mapper.
How do I know it is it compliant and secure?
elluminate is fully compliant with 21CFR Part 11 and ensures data privacy and security in accordance with global regulatory requirements. elluminate has a flexible permission architecture allowing limited access to certain types of data as required per client SOP. As a proven system in use for clinical data since 2012, elluminate has been used to prepare data for numerous regulatory submissions that have received approval across therapeutic areas.
Will we be able to get immediate value out of this?
Yes. As a cloud based system, elluminate can be deployed rapidly to ensure maximum value. The typical implementation and rollout takes a phased approach by identifying key value drivers elluminate can deliver for specific roles and functions, and implementing the platform to those groups while measuring success and satisfaction in the process. The goal of the elluminate delivery team is ensuring clinical teams achieve their business goals with high volume and adoption in the least amount of time.
How long will implementation take?
elluminate’s cloud-based products are designed for rapid implementation. A typical elluminate implementation takes 90 days which may include putting archived, new or ongoing studies into the hub. The implementation process includes defining the key value drivers of the system for the client, the data sources that will be included, and preparing and standardizing data. elluminate includes a validation accelerator package that provides a risk-based approach, as well as test scripts and documentation to facilitate the internal validation process. Implementation consultants guide client teams through the process, focusing on the capabilities that will maximize value to client stakeholder groups. End users are fully trained and prepared for elluminate adoption and rollout.
Is this truly self service?
The elluminate platform is dedicated to providing clinical researchers with self-service access to their data and self-service is one of the key themes used to govern elluminate product development prioritization. In Analytics, end users can copy and save worksheets to explore data and even create their own app from a variety of different data sources, according to their permissions. elluminate enables clients to determine the types of data access and permissions that are provided to different types of users, roles and groups to ensure the organization’s optimal level of self-service access to different data stores and analytics.
Is this proven?
elluminate is a proven platform that has been used by Life Sciences companies since 2012. Currently, more than 50 clinical development organizations of all sizes rely on elluminate to regain control of their clinical trial data. Critical data assets across thousands of studies are currently being stored in the elluminate platform for both ongoing and archived studies, providing researchers with new clinical and operational insights. Studies using elluminate for clinical data review, management and analysis have been submitted to regulatory authorities and approved, and SDTM data that was produced with elluminate Mapper has been used for FDA submission.
Will it scale?
elluminate scales effectively and leverages cloud-based processing power to ensure high performance for users independent of the volume of studies or the number of users accessing the system. elluminate uses a modern technology stack to ensure users experience optimized performance and visibility to their clinical data at all times.
Will people actually use it?
End users from Clinical Operations, Data Management, Medical Monitoring, Biostatistics and Clinical Programming enjoy working in elluminate as it provides them with immediate value, time savings and streamlined workflows. elluminate provides clinical teams with one source of truth from which to work, eliminating the need for numerous excel trackers that tell different stories and require rework and reconciliation.
