We support our clients with industry-leading customer service and training, community forums, and a wealth of educational resources.

Our Story

Founder Rick Arlow was immersed in clinical research during an NIH-funded MD/PhD medical scientist training program at Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, Oh.). Throughout the process, he noticed how cumbersome it was for research sites to effectively manage operations and regulatory compliance.  Although he loved the work, he was shocked by how much time was spent performing manual tasks, and the amount of space needed to store paper binders.

Drawing on his engineering background, Rick built the first version of the Complion software platform to store regulatory documentation. Through working in close collaboration with leading medical centers — like UCSF and Northwestern — Complion was born.

Since its founding, Complion has grown significantly as we continue to improve our platform and processes in response to our clients’ needs. We are honored to serve clinical research sites, Sponsors, and CROs of all sizes across the US.

Our Mission

Complion’s mission is to transform the way clinical trial documentation is created and maintained. By re-engineering cumbersome compliance processes, we strive to unleash medical innovators to better focus on the advancements that improve patient outcomes, and enhance the reputations of institutions and investigators.
