How to Achieve Alignment and Optimal Clinical Trial Supply Forecasting With a Single Source of Truth

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharma Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Tuesday, November 19, 2019

A clinical trial usually involves many different parties, who are not always used to communicating with each other: study managers, principal investigators, supply chain managers, manufacturers, IRT, CRAs and so on. Lack of communication can cause misunderstandings if a party is not informed of the latest data, potentially leading to patient risk.

By having a single source of truth, each collaborator can transparently access the latest clinical forecasts as well as up-to-date data including enrollment and dropout rate, titrations probabilities, future productions, etc. The reliability of this information is a must as it plays a fundamental role in the clinical supply strategy, as well as planning including distribution, packaging, manufacturing and sampling.

If everyone agrees on the source of truth, the resulting forecasts can legitimately be used across the organization for resource planning activities, decision-making, vendor management, etc. through strategic visualization dashboards.

When changes occur, such as faster enrollment, batch losses, shipping delays, new countries in the trial, real-time monitoring and updating clinical trial supply forecasts, using real-time data allows the single source of truth to stay current. This enables everyone across the organization to adapt their planning in order to mitigate the unexpected risk, ensuring patients will receive their medication on time while minimizing the costs.

Join this free webinar to learn how to get all clinical trial stakeholders on the same page, using a single source of truth for patient behaviour, demand forecast, production/distribution plans and inventory management.
