Unformatted text preview: Dynarand Inventory Management Overview In clinical trials, the need to link patients to treatment kits makes automated inventory management a natural extension of automated randomization. Dynarand's Inventory Management systems are based on a series of rules and thresholds developed with the client. The systems use the same centralized databases as their randomization counterparts. This prevents human error from compromising the ordering, assignment, and distribution of supplies, as well as offers multiple costsaving opportunities. Features Treatment kit assignment. The systems assign specific treatment kits to specific patients while achieving study balance and maintaining the study blind. IVR and Web access to the centralized database enables pharmacists or other study representatives to easily manage on-site kit assignments. Automated notifications with assignments supplement the centralized access. Treatment kit ordering. Automated and manual resupply requests are available in our systems. Minimum threshold levels and one-to-one kit replacements are commonly used techniques for managing supply. The systems notify the central pharmacy when additional or replacement kits are required either on a pre-determined schedule or on an as needed basis. 24/7 access to all tools is provided. Purposeful shortage. For extremely tight inventory pipelines, this system option combines dynamic randomization with a Dynarand-exclusive dynamic inventory management technique that allows for expected shortages of supplies while maintaining study design integrity. Expiry tracking. The system option monitors expiry and retest dates, automatically sends notifications, blocks distribution and blocks assignment of kits in advance of deadlines. Flexible date tracking allows for expiry/re-test dates to easily be updated as new information is obtained. A multi-tiered approach allows for any number of tracking and notification scenarios. Waste tracking. This system option's waste tracking feature makes it easy and efficient to reconcile remainders and returns. Summarized waste tracking reports also help confirm that drugs and other supplies have been consumed according to study parameters. Manual Override. Flexibility to adapt to the unknown is achieved through manual override modules that allow for variations from pre-programmed inventory shipping configurations on a case-by-case basis. Benefits Dynarand’s Inventory Management systems: ■ Just-in-time distribution. Whether managed by the client or by a third party, Dynarand's systems can coordinate just-in-time distribution all over the world. 24/7 access to real-time inventory data facilitates needbased distribution of supplies after initial shipments have been made. ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Provide 24/7 access to real-time inventory data Facilitate distribution around the world Minimize required inventory and storage costs Dramatically reduce material waste Dramatically reduce human error Improve overall study accuracy Save time and money Predictive inventory. This system option can predict sites' inventory needs by taking into account patient enrollment patterns, visit schedules, shipment transit times and specific randomization requirements as well as other factors. This allows for more precise inventory forecasting and increased accuracy in distribution of drugs and devices. 55 Francisco Street Suite 780 San Francisco, CA 94133 1-888-794-4877 ...
