Optimizing Clinical Supply Chain Management

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials,
  • Wednesday, October 05, 2022

Today’s clinical trials are more complex, requiring 65 to 85 percent more procedures, endpoints, collected data points and research sites than a few years ago. This complexity creates logistical challenges for clinical operations teams that result in a variety of problems. For example, sites not having IP for a patient visit, expired lab kits, lost biological samples and delayed resupply shipments. These clinical supply chain management problems contribute to increased costs, reduced productivity, decreased patient retention and threaten the success of clinical trials.

In this webinar, the featured speakers will cover the following topics:

  • Facilitating collaboration between sponsors, CROs, sites, labs, vendors and biorepositories
  • Obtaining real-time visibility into the location and status of IP, lab kits, samples and supplies
  • Gaining traceable chain-of-custody for biological samples, IP, lab kits and supplies
  • Ensuring compliance through protocol adherence and amendment harmonization

Register to explore the underlying causes of clinical supply chain management problems and discuss best practices to optimize them.
