EDGE is a clinical trials software that supports a wide range of research management functions and empowers research managers, data analysts, research nurses, clinicians and support services to make the most of their information. By allowing organisations to actively manage research within a single online system, information can be better organised and analysed in real-time. Multiple institutions can collaborate on a range of projects and EDGE’s reporting tools can help streamline the research governance and approval process. EDGE is the culmination of over a decade of clinical trials software development hosted by Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust in conjunction with the University of Southampton.
