In recent years, the burgeoning number and cost of clinical trials has led to the uptake of digital technologies designed to facilitate the capture of data and management of clinical trial processes in an efficient manner, reducing costs and timelines. In parallel the drive to minimize costs with the number of trials increasing has given rise to several tools designed to optimizing the supply chain, meeting time and budget constraints, and minimizing the risk of undersupplying and the wastage in oversupplying IMPs. Containing supply chain costs requires minimizing drug production and shipment expenditure, while mitigating the risks of running out of stock and patient harm by ensuring drug availability at the site level. With the numerous uncertainties in clinical trial planning, including changing protocols and variable recruitment rates the only way to optimise processes is by designing a robust forecasting tool that enables, data driven decisions for planning, forecasting and executing a study.
Interactive response technology (IRT) solutions are already a standard for the majority of clinical trials, with its numerous advantages; from patient management, randomization to real-time IMP kit allocation.
The combination of IRT functionality and supply chain logistics expertise has become the de facto approach for managing the clinical supply chain in a time and cost efficient manner. Having a well-designed forecasting tool and IRT solution that provides simulation and forecasting to support managers optimize their supply chain is increasingly indispensable.
