Tackling Trial Supply Shortages with Advanced IRT

Medication supply shortages have become a widespread industry concern. However, a considered RTSM design can prevent shortages from jeopardizing your study goals. In this webinar, we will review how a robust interactive response technology (IRT) system can address drug supply issues and outline the actions that can be taken to manage both expected and emergency drug shortages through:

  • Planning – supply simulation can help you plan manufacturing campaigns and optimal supply chains with confidence, especially if you have limited supplies
  • Designing – standard IRT design should manage drug expiration dates to keep drug wastage to a minimum, but there are many advanced supply management options you can also leverage to ensure the challenge of limited stock is prioritized
  • Adapting – RTSM settings can be quickly adapted to help you manage unforeseen situations during trial execution, such as delayed batch manufacture

Real-world trial examples will be presented that demonstrate how an advanced IRT system supports your supply challenges, regardless of when or why they occur.
