In this episode, I had the honor of speaking with Rust Felix and Joy Jurnack regarding the importance of a clinical inventory management system in clinical trial conduct.
Rust is the CEO of Slope.io, a company that is focused on helping clinical researchers get a better handle on their clinical trial inventory and management via the use of cloud-based software technology.
Joy is the director of research at Northwell Health. She is 25 + years of clinical research experience, participated in over 50 clinical trials and educated physicians on research topics. She serves as Trustee with The Academy of Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) and is a Fellow with ACRP.
Management of clinical inventory can be a headache for sponsors, CROs, and sites. Having too much product or too little medical product at participating sites can ruin clinical operations. The site needs just the right amount of medical product that matches their enrollment needs.
Given Rust’s role as a software creator and Joy’s role as a research nurse, we had a practical discussion on the current challenges with the way clinical inventory is managed and the changes we need to make for a more optimal clinical trial flow.
