Collaboration Between Clinical Operations and the Logistics and Supply Chain Teams is Key to Trial Success

The need to collaborate with internal and external teams for a trial to be successful isn’t a new idea or concept. However, we still see the detrimental effects of a lack of communication between organizational teams; this is particularly true when the clinical operations team fails to communicate with the supply chain and logistics team about upcoming changes. Understanding how decisions made by one group ultimately impacts other groups is important for conducting a successful clinical trial.  

Today's Supply Chain
We can all recognize that there is a need to better manage the increasingly uncertain and complex drug supply chain, which is affected by the inclusion of more patients, at more sites and in more countries; country-specific regulations and approvals for temperature-controlled drugs, packaging, labeling and logistics; and more intricate protocols.

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.
