Share Article

In order to address increasing regulatory requirements and trial complexity, participating PCRS Network Members and their Sponsors/CROs will be able to use Complion's workflow and document management platform to improve efficiency and compliance.

Investigative sites must comply with rising regulatory requirements at the same time that clinical trial complexity is increasing. To increase compliance and efficiency, sites must move from a separate sponsor-specific process for each study to a standardized format and procedure for all studies.

Through this partnership, PCRS Network and Complion are able to provide participating PCRS Network Members and their Sponsors/CROs with the following:

  • A standardized set of forms and processes customized for the site consisting of the: electronic regulatory binder, patient binder and central file for shared files like CVs, licenses, CLIAs/CAPs and more
  • A single web-based point of access for PCRS sponsors and CROs to access all sites
  • A proven transformation process with support based on best practices for part 11 compliance as well as obtaining sponsor reimbursement and the highest rates of staff adoption for eRegulatory system and activities across all trials
  • Facilitate eSignature for all study-related documents

“We are excited to partner with Complion to provide value to our Member sites. Our partnership is another step toward meeting our mission to Save and Improve Lives by Accelerating Clinical Research,” says John Neal, Founder and CEO of PCRS Network. “Complion is a leading pioneer in developing an innovative, truly electronic, and easy-to-use web-based solution that is compliant with all applicable Part 11 and HIPAA regulations.”

In collaboration with PCRS and other leading sites, Complion enables sites to store electronic regulatory binders, patient binders and central files without any paper backup, with advanced security, audit trails, as well as user access on a per trial and role basis. “We are pleased that PCRS Network chose to partner with us to help sites accelerate adoption and streamline a very inefficient process,” says Rick Arlow, Complion’s Founder and CEO. "We are revolutionizing the way sites conduct trials. Our customers are meeting increasing regulatory and documentation requirements in less time and with greater compliance. Sites are also differentiating themselves as successful research organizations that consistently meet deliverables and can provide secure remote access and communication tools for their sponsors and CROs. We've seen our customers achieve significant growth in trials. We take great pride and responsibility in Complion’s contribution to our clients and appreciate their ongoing feedback that enables us to continue to adapt and grow with the evolving needs of sites."

Complion provides sites:

  • A simplified portal for investigators to access the key documents and eSign from their phone or any device
  • Automatic integrations enable direct upload of documents and correspondences from existing email systems like Outlook or drag-n-drop from portals
  • Integrated eforms for direct storage and entry of sponsor, FDA and site forms from startup through archive
  • A self-service portal where monitors can login at one location and access records and communicate across all of their sites
  • Workflows, searchability and reports to not only store, but to streamline

In a recent first-of-its-kind survey by CenterWatch and Complion sites were found to spend over 255 hours per study managing regulatory and documentation tasks and spend and over $1,125 on material and archiving costs. Sites that have adopted a standard process and eRegulatory system have been shown to save 40% of the time and 100% of the material and archiving costs – valued at $6,235 in savings per study.
