The trend toward crafting patient-centric clinical trials hold great promise in supporting patients’ willingness and ability to participate in important clinical research. For sponsors who are embracing the promise of patient-centric trials however, new challenges are emerging, including how to transform the clinical supply chain from one that is relatively fixed and site-centric to one that has the flexibility to respond to changes in patient demand. This webinar will explore how recent innovations in forecasting, supply pooling, decentralized processing, labeling, demand-led supply and direct-to-patient distribution are converging to create a next-generation clinical supply chain that is flexible, lean and most importantly patient-centric.

Register for the webinar to get insights from industry experts on:
  • Demand led manufacturing and supply
  • Forecasting and inventory management
  • Innovations and considerations in labelling
  • Direct-to-patient distribution
