Reduce Build Time of IRT Systems

Speaker:Priya Kurian

As we move deeper into the 21st century, technologies available to clinical research teams are evolving at an ever-increasing rate. Whilst this evolution allows clinical trials to become increasingly smart and patient-centric it also runs the risk of making trials increasingly complicated with many more moving parts, third party vendors and data sources to integrate. With this in mind, how do we prevent these exciting new technologies that are designed to save us time and effort, from becoming the rate limiting steps in clinical trial set-up?

This webinar will examine both the stumbling blocks that have historically delayed the successful implementation of IRT systems and also new challenges that we increasingly face as the uptake in technological solutions intensifies. We will then explore some possible solutions; both quick-fixes and longer term strategies that will take IRT development off the table as a rate-limiting step in clinical trial set-up.

  • Understand the historical stumbling blocks that limit the speed of IRT set-up
  • Identify new challenges that emerge as technological solution uptake intensifies
  • Suggest some quick-fixes to see immediate improvements in development time
  • Explore potential longer-term strategies to reduce the build time of IRT
