We are living in a technologically-literate world, where using an iPhone or tablet computer is quite literally child’s play. Software has had a larger part to play in clinical research as technologies become more advanced and useful to research sites, investigators and sponsors. RTSM technology is one of those that is making the process of global research easier and more efficient. Jo Shorthouse, Scrip 100 Asia Editor, talks to PAREXEL Informatics.

Study Management in ClinPhone RTSM (Kanji)
Randomization and Trial Supply Management (RTSM) are the activities associated with real-time processing and monitoring of enrolment, treatment allocation, dosing, dispensing and clinical supplies tracking. Technology used to support these processes is also known as IRT (Interactive Response Technology) or IVR/IWR (Interactive Voice/Web Response). Here we look at traditional barriers to adopt RTSM in Asia-Pacific along with looking at how PAREXEL can meet the needs of Asia-Pacific studies with RTSM services.

Electronic Clinical Outcome Assessments (eCOA)
Clinical Outcome Assessments (COAs) measure a patient’s symptoms, overall mental state, or the effects of a disease or condition on how the patient functions. COAs can be used to determine whether or not a drug has been demonstrated to provide treatment benefit. COA types include ePRO (electronic Patient Reported Outcomes).
