The clinical trial environment was already evolving at a rapid pace before the presence of COVID-19, but now speed and efficiency are paramount.  Expectations and performance of an Interactive Response Technology (IRT) partner have now intensified, as sponsors require a shorter time to go live, while requiring advancements in risk mitigation and ensuring the drug can get to the patient.

In this insightful webinar, we will present a look at current trial challenges sponsors are facing, how novel IRT products are actively helping sponsors in their fight against COVID-19, and offer practical tips that will keep your study conduct in compliance and progressing amidst a pandemic.

Key takeaways:

  • The impact of today’s environment on conducting clinical trials and ensuring patient safety
  • How IRT implementation speed can be accelerated to account for evolving trial conduct
  • Practical tips for streamlining your trials and preventing supply chain disruption, all while remaining compliant
