While IRT technology has gotten increasingly powerful, detailed knowledge of all the functions an IRT can and should do has lagged somewhat behind. This vendor selection checklist was prompted by requests from our clients and colleagues —Sponsors, CROs, and Clinical Suppliers — for a reasonably comprehensive summary of features and issues to consider when vetting IRT vendors and systems today.
We developed this checklist using our fifteen years of experience deploying global systems. It contains many of the capabilities you can reasonably expect from an IRT vendor, and it is our recommended reference guide for issues to consider when selecting your IRT provider. We certainly hope you find it useful.
