Clinical trials are frequently required to run large numbers of patients through blinding (or masking) processes. Randomization and trial supply management (RTSM) solutions help randomize the participant allocation and ensure the study design is balanced and trial supplies are available when and where they are needed. A key piece of those efforts is the use of interactive response technology (IRT) software.
Historically, IRT study build processes followed a sequential, waterfall approach that introduced extra costs, time and—most importantly—errors that can affect the ability to launch the study on time or run the study as efficiently as possible. While incremental improvements seen so far in the industry are both welcome and meaningful, it is necessary for a broad change across the industry to fully embrace an agile approach to IRT and the benefits that will ultimately accrue to the sites running studies and their patients.
