Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 16, 2006
LifeLink Foundation, a leading health care organization responsible for the recovery and transplantation of organs and tissue, selected Compliance 360 as its policy and procedure compliance solution for all Foundation divisions including those regulated by the federal government. With this solution, LifeLink will organize and centralize documentation storage, automate workflow between divisions located in West Central Florida, Georgia and Puerto Rico, and link all policies and procedures to the pertinent regulations and standards governing organ and tissue recovery. This strategic move assists in the organization’s initiative to reduce manual processes, improve agility, and provide greater visibility to overall compliance status.
“We chose Compliance 360 because their solution fit our needs and has the ability to integrate with our learning management system,” stated Art Heinrichs, Vice President, Corporate Compliance Officer, LifeLink Foundation, Inc. “Our mission of saving lives through organ and tissue donation and transplantation involves many policies, procedures, state and federal guidelines. Since we have multiple locations we believe the hosted, on-demand solution fits perfectly into our day to day operations. Compliance 360 allows all of our divisions - regardless of location - the ability to access, collaborate, and manage documents while demonstrating compliance Foundation-wide.”
“LifeLink selected our policy and procedure management system as an important component of their comprehensive governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) management.

Several solutions were evaluated including the internally-developed Microsoft SharePoint and CoraWorks web components, stated John Rhon, Vice president of Information Systems, LifeLink Foundation, Inc. “The Compliance 360 Policy and Procedure solution had more advanced automated workflow functionality, stronger collaboration features and enhanced single sourcing of documentation to manage our web based document and content management cycle.”
