Efficient Clinical Trial Supplies — Benefitting from an Electronic Site Inventory Solution

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials,
  • Thursday, March 24, 2022

Is Interactive Response Technology (IRT) oversized and not the right fit for a trial? Is an IRT not fitting into a budget, but there is still a want to benefit from using an electronic system? Are randomization capabilities not needed? Are hours of resources being wasted by manually updating excel files to keep track of clinical site inventory?

Using an Inventory Management System (IMS) might be the right solution for a clinical trial. Utilizing an IMS system can vastly improve the visibility, control and management of a clinical trial.

In this webinar, the featured speakers will highlight the many key differences and benefits between an IRT and IMS, the key benefits to utilizing a fully integrated IMS, followed by case studies to help identify when to utilize such a system. The goal of the webinar is to get a better sense of the solutions, how to utilize them and which one is the best for individual trials.
