When managing crucial aspects of the patient journey in clinical trials, interactive response technology (IRT) has proven to be a powerful tool for tasks such as randomization, medication dispensing, and optimizing clinical supply chains. As technology progresses, clinical trials are also growing in complexity, generating more data than ever before. To adapt to this new study environment, IRT must change to keep up with effectively managing data across various systems, automating, streamlining the patient journey, and improving the clinical supply chain. In order to effectively dispense the appropriate medication to the appropriate patient at the appropriate time, clinical technologies like IRT must also be able to quickly adapt to changing clinical trial protocols.

The predictive analysis of long-term and short-term drug needs across national, regional, and international supply networks using real-time IRT data enables the optimization of clinical supply management at the site level while highlighting and reducing supply network risks. In turn, this helps sponsors reach sustainability goals by encouraging more effective, environmentally friendly trial administration while also significantly reducing costs.

Learn how applying predictive data analytics can enable the creation of an ideal supply strategy that reduces the need for extra shipments, manual oversight, and supply waste.
