eCaseLink IRT

Interactive Response Technology (IRT)

DSG’s award winning IRT is a seamlessly integrated component of eCaseLink™ that helps you to easily manage randomization, subject enrollment and drug supply management in any clinical trial.

Randomizing, enrolling study subjects and managing drug supply, is crucial to the success of clinical trials, regardless of phase. In today’s Internet-savvy world, Interactive Response Technology (IRT) is quickly replacing outmoded and time consuming voice response systems.

eCaseLink’s IRT increases efficiency and productivity with lower error rates, and eliminates the need for costly and inefficient IVR systems. eCaseLink’s IRT delivers savings of over $100,000 per study, on average.

The benefits of eCaseLink’s IRT

Stand-alone or full EDC Integration

IRT from DSG is seamlessly integrated with eCaseLink EDC software, reducing the need or completely eliminating traditional telephone-based Interactive Voice Response Systems (IVRS). IRT from DSG provides advanced, award-winning technology, enabling users to fully leverage eCaseLink.

Award Winning Technology

DSG is the industry leader in integrated EDC technology. The Society for Clinical Data Management recognized DSG with its Data Driven Innovation Award in 2007 for DSG’s work with Sirion Therapeutics developing state-of-the-art patient randomization, drug delivery and supply management, and reconciliation in real-time within eCaseLink in six studies.

Lower Costs and Increased Efficiency

DSG’s Interactive Response Technology (IRT) and integrated EDC functionality enables continuous reconciliation to occur, minimizing the need for additional external reconciliation. This enables sites to completely replace IVRS with the less costly and more efficient Web-based option. DSG delivers savings on average of over $100,000 per study through the use of its IWRS. With many sites and sponsors opting for Web-based solutions, companies can deploy IRT without the need for external feeds. Immediate randomization and drug supply management can be done on-site with better tracking and no need for “on-call” representatives across geographies and time zones. Sites can also eliminate waste, (especially with expensive therapies) and management has the ability to generate reportage on drug kit usage, randomization and inventory supply all in one location.

Inventory Management

DSG’s IRT provides a centralized pathway to complete clinical trial drug supply. For Sponsors using Just In Time (JIT) methods of controlling inventory, a Web-based solution has adequate supply sent to sites from depots throughout the supply chain. This key function reduces human error that’s common to traditional IVRS and paper-based methods. eCaseLink IWRS completely manages supply chain from shipment to re-supply to ensuring proper kit numbers and monitoring defective supply. eCaseLink generates automated messages triggered by a pre-set low supply threshold.

Automated Patient Randomization

eCaseLink’s IRT automated randomization systems use the latest statistical methods, programming and validation procedures. This ensures quick and accurate patient assignments, and balanced and valid subject assignments. These services range from block assignments to complex dynamic and adaptive randomization.
