Clinical IVR/IWR

Is It Time to Embed Supply Chain Forecasting in Interactive Response Technology?

  • 04 Jan

Some of my Bioclinica colleagues and I recently attended CBI's IRT 2016 conference in Philadelphia. While there were plenty of interesting topics discussed at the conference, one presentation particularly stuck out to me: the benefits of connecting supply chain forecasting for clinical trials more closely with interactive response technology (IRT) software. The reliance of effective clinical trial forecasting on IRT data is well understood within the clinical trial world, and was a big talking point at the conference.

Final installment in a three-part series on drug supply shortages in clinical trials with BioClinica's Trident IRT Team.

If you've been following this blog series on drug shortages, you know why it's so important to stay on top of clinical trial drug supply and the potential impact on clinical trials when shortages do occur: subject loss, lowered enrollment, budget escalation, delays and even study discontinuation.

John Burns, a member of BioClinica's Trident IRT team, was asked to present on drug shortages in clinical trials as part of a panel discussion at DIA. In it, he outlined examples of preventable causes and shared case studies showing what happens when things go awry.  Here is Part 1 in a three-part blog series recapping his discussion.

With IRT Becoming the Gold Standard, Do We Still Need IVR?

  • 0
  • 29 Oct

With the advanced functionality and mobile accessibility of web-based Interactive Response Technology (IRT), is Interactive Voice Response (IVR) still needed?

The reality is, BioClinica continues to receive RFPs with the phone component included — but afterward the IVR goes unused. So I question how much longer customers will request it and for how much longer IVR will be maintained alongside IRT. Is the voice system there to serve as a back-up, for comfort, or is it for some other reason?

Electronic Data Capture in Clinical Trials and IVR Study Setup Tips

While they offer sponsors the ability to run faster, more efficient clinical trials, using an Electronic Data Capture (EDC) or an Interactive Voice/Web Response (IVR/IWR) system can be a challenge for any sponsor. Large pharma, small biotechs, CROs, device companies, and academic research centers all go through the same study startup process of determining which data needs to be collected, and how to assure the data is correct and complete.

Modeling IVR Studies Ship Times

  • 0
  • 18 Aug
We often run into cases where an IVR (interactive voice response) system may not generate shipment orders for study kits every day. For example, commonly it seems they may only ship Monday through Thursday. In many cases this could be due to cold chain supplies having to be received immediately and being unable to guarantee that someone will be there to receive the shipment on a weekend. Others, however, may be for unrelated policy reasons. Standard modeling practice says to add a day to the shipping lead-time for every day that is not available for shipping (3 days in the case of the above example). Related to this concept, there is often some confusion for new users about whether the shipping lead-time for the IVR study refers to calendar days or business days.
