The clinical randomization and trial supply management (RTSM) systems we now dub “IRT” were initially built as fully customized IT projects, individualized and implemented separately for each study. While the processes have improved and some IRT providers are now using systems designed for more configurability, today our industry demands a more nimble and accurate solution: “agile” IRT.
While many vendors are claiming agile IRT capabilities, it is important to dig deeply and examine these claims – as well as a company’s proven ability to provide predictable, consistent delivery of project timelines and quality.
To ensure that you realize the benefits of moving to an agile IRT, it is important to find the right vendor partner with the experience needed for your study and the commitment to your success. Taking a moment to evaluate the vendor’s capabilities and track record is worth the time and effort, by saving valuable resources in the long-term.
