Trial operations companies increasingly innovating in supply chain, logistics

It should come as no surprise that a key component of successful clinical research in the field is an effective supply chain and well-orchestrated clinical trial logistics. Whether you’re a drug manufacturer looking to run your own trial, or a sponsor looking for a trial operations company, it is wise to look at the supply chain and clinical trial logistics infrastructure available to support your research and execution in the field. This applies to all types of clinical trials, whether on-site or decentralized. 

Trial sponsors who wish to look beyond the United States and Europe for their clinical trials, especially decentralized trials, will find that much of this infrastructure is missing for operators who do not specialize in the regions of interest. Latin America is a key example – unlike Europe, Latin America does not have a centralized organizational/regulatory body like the EU, and therefore presents unique challenges across multiple borders and levels of government. Navigating the regulatory environment is just the tip of the iceberg. Additionally, distribution networks must be set up and operated, supply chains must be managed, and collected data must be gathered and centralized. With all of the innovation afoot in the clinical trial industry, bringing them to regions like Latin America requires additional specialization and creative-thinking.

For sponsors looking to move into Latin America, the best way forward is to take advantage of experienced clinical trial operators who have laid the necessary groundwork in the region. Specifically, operators who have built out supply chains, distribution depots, and clinical trial logistics, and, for decentralized trials, direct-to-patient mobile nursing services Few companies can boast as extensive of a network as H Clinical, all the way across Latin America – from cities and countries big and small. This means our work can span across multiple countries, getting the drugs where they are needed and executing clinical trial visits in the home.
