Copyright Licensing Solutions
"…the biggest benefit Carle is receiving from having the Annual Copyright License is the free flow of information. People can feel comfortable about sharing information when we give the OK—they know it’s legal." – Jerry DeWitt, Librarian, Carle Hospital Foundation, Urbana, IL
Copyright licensing, although often overlooked, is a major area of health care compliance. Hospitals and health care services providers thrive on the exchange of information, from research and industry news to workforce trends and legislative reform. In the daily rush to get things done, even well intentioned employees may unknowingly share copyrighted material without permission to do so. When not addressed appropriately, health care organizations run the risk of copyright infringement from unlawful use of content. Because of the size and complexity of hospitals, careful attention must be given to ensure that information is shared properly by all users.
