ICSM - Intelligent Clinical Supply Management
Discover the next gen clinical supply solution
Q1 2022 will see the launch of a new clinical supply management solution: ICSM – Intelligent Clinical Supply Management (previously known as NextGen CTSM). The latest industry standard to manage the clinical trial supply chain is built on SAP’s Business Technology Platform and powered by SAP S/4HANA. The ecosystem solution will be robust and flexible at the same time and offers leading capabilities.
Leveraging cloud technologies for clinical trial supply management (CTSM)
The new solution "Intelligent Clinical Supply Management" is the answer to managing the seismic shift to patient-centric value chains.
As the lead system integrator, we proudly announce the launch of ICSM in Q1 2022. An industry consortium of leading pharma companies, industry service and software providers, and SAP is developing the platform, designed with an ecosystem approach.
The ICSM ecosystem
Clinical trial supply chains operate globally and have interactions with and dependencies on 3rd party partners. With Tenthpin providing much of the solution know-how, Intelligent Clinical Supply Management will be an ecosystem solution with integrations to partners and IRT providers using industry standards.
Integration capabilities with study IRT solutions will cover all depot to site inventory requests through execution. Anonymized patient enrollment and visit information will be included to allow for improved clinical supply planning and replenishment algorithms.
3rd party integration
Integration capabilities to drug manufacturers, packagers, and distributors are being developed leveraging cloud technologies. The resulting end-to-end visibility of near real-time inventory in a standards-based IT architecture will benefit drug sponsors and 3rd parties.
Clinical trial supply analytics
Measuring and visualizing performance at multiple levels (site, depot, 3rd party, study, program, etc.) is crucial to managing today’s complex clinical studies. Our analytics solutions integrate seamlessly into the ICSM ecosystem and offer improved oversight and automation of actions across the clinical trial.
