DFdiscover (formerly iDataFax)
DFdiscover, formerly iDataFax is an established EDC system with a 25 year history in the industry.
It began as a paper/fax-based data management system and evolved into an EDC system about 10 years ago. Everest has full capability in building and hosting DFdiscover and iDataFax studies in-house. This EDC has been used by Everest since it opened its doors in 2004 and we have extensive knowledge in database design, including data integration with IWRS/IVRS and other clinical trial management and safety monitoring systems. This system is an effective and less costly EDC option as compared to the other industry brand name EDC systems. Everest has leveraged this technology in many studies in all phases globally and has submitted numerous studies conducted to regulatory agencies.
