Winning The Race To FPI With Early Randomization And Trial Supply Management

Packaging decisions may seem benign, but they can have a direct impact on whether a clinical trial experiences supply chain issues. The ability to get investigational products to sites, and appropriately store them, is not a given – and this oversight can have serious consequences. Employing your RTSM vendors’ expertise early prevents these issues from becoming problems and can expose surprising efficiencies.

Facing a myriad of deadlines and deliverables, time- and resource-crunched study leaders maintain a delicate balance around how tasks should be prioritized, day-by-day or minute-by-minute, in the race against the clock to FPI (first participant in). Often this means that critical decisions about the core technologies that will enable the study are deferred until just months (or even weeks) before FPI, and why not? Past practice has shown that with the right vendor, the Randomization and Trial Supply Management (RTSM) system can be refined until days before go-live. But this approach is short-sighted.
