The Power of RTSM Problem Solvers on your Team - You spend an enormous amount of time assessing technology vendors through RFIs, pilots and capability presentations. Not only must the technology fit your needs, but you also make a judgement call based on the trust and value of the future relationship. Ultimately, the decision may weigh in favor of someone you can envision your team working well together.
We’ve been seeing a lot of messaging around agility in Randomization and Trial Supply Management (RTSM) or as some refer to it, Interactive Response Technology (IRT). Is “agile” becoming the new “innovative”? Does everyone understand what it truly means to be agile with regards to software development? What about project delivery?

Clinical News Roundup for the week of May 29, 2017 with information on cancer patients finding their own trials, Marken launching a new hybrid clinical trial service, a call for clinical trial overhaul, and Califf making a new start with Verily.
Conducting clinical trials for rare, debilitating diseases can be particularly challenging, owing to the smaller patient population with limited mobility and greater caregiving requirements. Direct-to-patient shipping of clinical trial drugs, while not typical, might help to reach these patient populations who otherwise would struggle to participate in and comply with clinical trials. However, implementation of this strategy is challenging because of many reasons such as the logistical considerations and regulatory requirements regarding patient confidentiality and quality control. Recently, Bioclinica collaborated with a sponsor to successfully ship study drugs directly to patients.
Marken collected a shipment from southern Sweden that was bound for next-day delivery in northern Belgium. However, all airline flights into Belgium were cancelled as a result of a strike action by airport workers.
