Effective Use of an IRT Platform for Clinical Supply Chain Management

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharma Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Thursday, May 30, 2019

The way in which clinical supplies are managed can make or break a clinical development budget. Clinical supply management decisions often result in significant overage and waste as a risk mitigation tactic against insufficient supplies and compromised trial outcomes.  Bryan Clayton and Korinne D’Orsi discuss how to optimize the balance between shipment and packaging costs using an IRT system.

  • Fixed and variable costs must be managed closely
    • While both shipment and packaging costs can be unplanned for and play a significant part on a study budget, effective use of an IRT can reduce some variable costs.
    • Reducing clinical supplies overage can save hundreds of thousands of dollars if planned correctly.  Often distribution costs can be escalated by unseen global shipments, so it is critical to appropriately manage your resupply strategy.

Attendees will learn about the historical context of IRT, the impact of increased clinical trial complexity on clinical supply management and how technology replaced randomization by packaged design. Additionally, this webinar will discuss key stakeholders, and when to get them involved.
