Sponsor Oversight Responsibilities for IRT: Proactive Management that Meets Regulatory Scrutiny

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials,
  • Thursday, January 30, 2020

As the use of eClinical technology grows, regulatory agencies are increasing their expectations of trial sponsors to demonstrate oversight and active management of their Interactive Response Technology (IRT). Many organizations have struggled to find a balance between effectiveness and efficiency in this regard, as the “correct strategy” is subjective.

In this free webinar, learn the significance of User Acceptance Testing (UAT) as a part of vendor oversight, along with what you really need to know to leverage or improve your current practices.  The featured speakers will not only discuss efficient methods that will ultimately help ease stress when achieving IRT milestones, but the benefits of maintaining an IRT that’s inspection-ready. All of which can be done while protecting patients and keeping sponsors and their suppliers aligned.
