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.
Why We Endorsed Copyright Licensing Solutions from Copyright Clearance Center
CCC, the rights licensing experts, is a global rights broker for the world's most sought after materials, including millions of in- and out-of-print books, journals, newspapers, magazines, images, blogs and ebooks. Founded in 1978 as a not-for-profit organization, CCC provides smart solutions that simplify the licensing of content that lets businesses and academic institutions quickly get permission to use copyright-protected materials, while compensating publishers and content creators for the use of their works. The Annual Copyright License provides organizations with centralized coverage which reduces the need to negotiate re-use rights on a case-by-case basis with individual publishers, a process that can be cost prohibitive and an administrative burden for organizations like hospitals and health systems.
Having the latest medical information is vital in any health environment. Physicians, nurses and residents often use and share information as part of patient care, accessing the latest medical studies to ensure the highest quality of care. However, it isn’t always clear if you have the proper rights to share that content.
Is your hospital is at risk?
Hear from AHA Solutions President & CEO, Anthony Burke, why Copyright Licensing Solutions was awarded the exclusive endorsement of the American Hospital Association.
The health care field is challenged with containing rising cost for prescription drugs, an aging population which requires more care and the increasing cost of medical technology. The new health care reform law is aimed at helping control costs, but hospitals must also look at other ways to become more efficient and lower operating costs.

We make it easy for hospitals to share information critical to providing patient care, exchange information with colleagues and minimize the risk of copyright infringement.
