Increasingly complex, international clinical trials demand a smart, comprehensively planned approach. With the correct IRT system in place, you have a powerful tool for accelerating your product’s progress to launch. While IRT manages patient interactions and drug supplies as well as support reporting functions for trial sponsors, drug depots and investigative sites, it has the potential to do more. Through better planning and early engagement with experienced IRT specialists, you can reduce the risk, time and resources spent on your clinical trial.
What you will learn:
- Gain insights into how to better manage your clinical studies, how to optimize your trial for improved subject enrollment and inventory management
- Learn why earlier engagement with IRT planning specialists will improve outcomes for your study
- Learn the risks and challenges to avoid when planning your trial
- Learn what future developments are on the horizon for IRT to support clinical trials
