Bringing a drug through clinical trials to the commercial market is an expensive and lengthy process which involves a network of moving parts. It can take years before a drug makes it to launch and many trials are subject to setbacks along the way. Managing a clinical trial manually can not only risk additional delays, but it can also add to the overall budget.

Manual processes in clinical trials require dedicated resources at each investigation site to properly manage activity on a day-to-day basis. Data management alone can account for a significant portion of the total cost in a trial when factoring in procedural, site monitoring and extra staff time. The salaries of extra personnel at each site, the costs of manual documentation, distribution and supply can quickly begin to add up.

In this article, Rich Scheuermann, Account Executive at Sharp, explains how interactive response technology (IRT) can solve some of the most common challenges of manually managed clinical trials. He also outlines how to find the best IRT solution that meets the requirements of a clinical trial.
