Using Technology to Promote Technology, ISPE Offers Interactive Voice Response Live Webinar

(TAMPA, FLORIDA, USA, 10 FEBRUARY 2009)-ISPE, a global not-for-profit association of 25,000 pharmaceutical science and manufacturing professionals, announced today that it will host a live, one-hour Webinar titled, ”Use of IVR to Support Elimination of Use-by Dates from Clinical Trial Labels,” on Thursday, 26 February.
 
Michael Arnold, Business Process Head for Pfizer, and Christine Milligan, Director of Client Services for Fisher Clinical Services, will discuss the possibility of eliminating use-by dates on Investigational Medicinal Product (IMP) labels to reduce costs and minimize patient risk by using Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technology while still remaining in compliance with European Union directives.
 
“ISPE is excited to provide this unique educational opportunity about how technology can reduce costs for the pharmaceutical industry and minimize risk for patients, while using cutting-edge technology to deliver that message,” said Robert P. Best, ISPE President and CEO.
 
The presentation will review the activities and conclusions of the Label Task Team, feedback from competent authorities to date, identification of related reference documents, and the next steps toward broader application. Additionally, the session will review parts of the draft whitepaper and updates to risk analysis report comparing the use of IVR versus conventional packaging for managing use-by dates.
 
Attendance is recommended for investigational product planners, project managers, packaging professionals, contract service providers, clinical trial/supply chain professionals, clinical supply and quality control personnel, and regulatory chemistry and manufacturing controls personnel.
