The Interactive Response Technology (IRT) space, also sometimes called Randomization and Trial Supply Management (RTSM), has continued to evolve since the publisher put out their first report on the topic in 2014. Over the years, clinical technologies have been driven by the need to integrate, yielding a landscape of integrated technology providers and full-service CROs that offer IRT as part of a suite of other technologies. There are few dedicated IRT providers left among the market leaders, and customers continue to value integration with EDC, CTMS, eCOA, and other technologies above all else.

The clinical technology industry continues to see a lot of change, including mergers, acquisitions, and spin-offs among leaders in the space. Furthermore, decentralized trials have disrupted traditional clinical trial methods, challenging IRT providers to support direct to patient shipping and other unmet needs. Amidst all of the upheaval, the publisher aims to stay abreast of the latest trends in clinical technology and to keep a pulse on outsourcing trends and provider performance.

This report digs into the IRT provider evaluation process, including which criteria are most important for choosing a provider, the role of build complexity in provider selection, and critical quality measures for IRT systems. Also included is an overview of outsourcing trends, such as usage of preferred provider agreements, how rates of outsourcing to third party providers differ across company sizes, suggested improvements to IRT systems from users, and unmet needs in decentralized trials. In keeping with the benchmarking methodology used across many of the publisher's reports, this report includes an analysis of key metrics of brand strength, a metric based on pure perception in the marketplace, as well as brand performance, which is based on respondent evaluations of their recent interactions with service providers.
