Choosing the Right Clinical Trial Solution for Distribution and Supply Optimization

Using an IRT or IMS System can vastly improve the visibility, control and management of a clinical trial. What are the differences between them? Which solution is the most suitable for a given trial? This webinar will focus on how carefully examining clinical trial and protocol expectations will allow participants to choose the right solution for their clinical trials. The panelists will highlight the many key benefits to using an IRT system, the key benefits to utilizing a fully integrated inventory management system, followed by case studies to help identify which is best for your clinical trial. The goal is to walk away with a better sense of the solutions, how to utilize them and which one is the best for individual trials.
