ICTI Increase Drug Study Management Efficiency

June 23, 2005

Clinical trials are frequently performed on study drugs that are expensive to produce and in short supply. ICTI helps pharmaceutical and biotech companies manage limited drug supply by using its Interactive Voice Response (iVR) systems with algorithms unique to each clinical trial.

ICTI is pleased to announce that it has implemented an improvement to its drug supply management capabilities. A cross-functional team within ICTI, with the review and approval of ICTI’s biostatistician, recently examined algorithms and practices that have been used for drug management for hundreds of clinical trials. The team developed a set of standards upon which ICTI’s study drug management algorithms are now based. This robust model is flexible enough to accommodate all clinical trials, and incorporates table-driven values to adjust to changing drug management needs throughout a trial.

Richard McCann, ICTI’s President, notes,

“Our customers will benefit from our use of this standards-based drug management model because it reduces IVR development time and maximizes efficient use of scarce study drug. This is another example of how ICTI’s team continually looks to provide additional benefits to our clients.”
