NCI Fact Sheet and Questions and Clinical Trials
Interactive Response Technology (IRT) – also known as IWR (Interactive Web Response) is a critical system within the eClinical software segment for clinical trials. IRT automates functions to ensure proper management of patients, sites and clinical supplies. Throughout the trial, IRT is used to enroll and monitor subjects as well as serving as the system of record if, during the course of a blinded study, a need arises to expose the treatment of a patient. All site clinical supply levels are monitored and resupplied throughout the trial via the IRT system.
Electronic Patient Reported Outcome (ePRO) – Once a Patient/Subject is enrolled in a study, an ePRO (smartphone) device is provided to the patient in order to collect information per the protocol. Typically this information is in the form of a questionnaire. Trialogics will provide this standard service as well as the ability to collect data from wearables and other medical devices when introduced.
