Chicago, IL (Vocus/PRWEB) April 07, 2011
The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced it has exclusively endorsed Copyright Licensing Solutions, including the products Annual Copyright License for Business and Rightsphere®, from Copyright Clearance Center (CCC). AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA endorsement to products and services that help member hospitals and health care organizations achieve operational excellence. Following an extensive evaluation of their licensing solutions, CCC’s copyright licensing solutions were selected for the endorsement.
Health care systems access, use and distribute large amounts of print and Web content to keep professionals educated about issues affecting their medical and hospital practice. CCC’s copyright licensing solutions facilitate responsible sharing of copyrighted material to keep organizations abreast of intellectual property laws.
“Ensuring caregivers at hospitals have the information they need is very important,” said Anthony Burke, President and CEO of AHA Solutions. “CCC centralizes coverage, eliminating the need to negotiate re-use rights with individual publisher and rights licenses that can be cost prohibitive and an administrative burden for organizations such as hospitals and health systems.”
“The AHA endorsement will spotlight the importance of copyright compliance and its value to hospitals,” said Diane Pierson, CCC Vice President, Marketing. “We are honored to be aligned with an organization that has a 100-year commitment to helping hospitals and health care systems in their pursuit of excellence.”
