Factoring the "What Ifs" into Supply Forecasting

With the pressure on to deliver new products faster and more efficiently, sponsors are facing a variety of challenges:

  • Growth of Clinical Trials: The competition is fierce. In 2018, there were 277,000+ trials registered at ClinicalTrials.gov
  • Patient Recruitment Challenges: 80% of pharma clinical trials do not meet enrollment deadlines, this can result in an average loss of 1.3 million per day per drug candidate.
  • Shorter Study Start-Up Timelines: Shorter timelines = shorter study lead times. How can you adhere to the narrower time window, while making sure you’re leaving little room for error?
