Interactive Response
Technology (IRT) – IXRS®3

Used in more than 2,800 clinical trials and in 120+ countries around the world

Interactive Voice Response Systems (IVRS) and Interactive Web Response Systems (IWRS) gather data via user input, through voice response or manual entry. Interactive Response Technology (IRT) is a combination of both systems. These systems are used to support the management of clinical trials, providing a central data source for patient endpoints, visit schedules, dosing and more.

Over the past several years, clinical trials have become increasingly intricate. Study sponsors now aim to satisfy multiple objectives within a single, more complex protocol. As the level of complexity grows, it’s imperative that the technology employed to capture this critical data keeps up.

Almac Clinical Technologies has earned a reputation for providing a level of flexibility through Interactive Response Technology (IRT) software that is unmatched in the industry.

Available in multiple modalities, our market-leading solution for patient randomisation and trial supply management is the most configurable and customisable Interactive Response Technology available. From Phase I through to IV, simple designs to complex adaptive trials, IXRS®3 will easily accommodate any permutation of study objectives, and with it comes a team of professional biostatisticians, language and integration experts who are at the ready 24/7.

IXRS®3 and Exostar Identity and Access Management Service

ExostarAs part of our commitment to innovation and providing a better IRT experience for clinical trial operations, we’ve partnered with Exostar to bring industry-leading Single Sign-On (SSO) capabilities to users of the IXRS®3 platform. This technological advance enables Almac IRT users to seamlessly utilise their pre-existing network account credentials in order to log in to the IXRS – eliminating the need to manage and maintain another set of single-usage credentials.

This capability not only increases site productivity and security for Trial Sponsor entities, Contract Research Organizations (CROs), cloud application providers, and other participating members, but also reduces the impact to patients waiting to be treated as well.

Increased site productivity

  • Reduced cognitive load of using single-usage user name and password combinations
  • Reduced number of calls to the help desk

Reduced impacts to patient

  • Less time fumbling with passwords, more time with patient
  • Less chance of having to send a patient home and reschedule a crucial visit because of lockout issues

Increased security

  • Eliminate the need to have printouts of user names and passwords
  • Makes consistent use of good password practices easier
