De-identification Training Program

New course and professional credential to address the gap between the increasing need to share healthcare data responsibly and the shortage of experts trained to use the HITRUST De-identification Framework to manage risk, protect privacy and achieve regulatory compliance

Ottawa, ON February 25, 2016 – Privacy Analytics – the leading provider of software that safeguards and enables personal health data for secondary purposes – announced today that it will partner with the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) to develop a new training and certification program to increase the number of experts capable of applying the HITRUST De-identification Framework.

Developed in collaboration with healthcare, information security, and de-identification professionals, the HITRUST De-Identification Framework provides a consistent, managed methodology for the de-identification of data and the sharing of compliance and risk information among entities and their key stakeholders. The new training and certification program is based on the HITRUST De-identification Framework, launched last year.

“De-identification is a key method for protecting privacy by preventing a patient’s identity from being connected with health information and is a key mechanism for allowing the sharing of health information for secondary purposes under the HIPAA Privacy Rule,” said Dr. Bryan Cline, Vice President, HITRUST. “The HITRUST De-identification Framework follows best practices and builds on many decades of experience with the de-identification of health and other data, while simplifying and streamlining the process of data sharing.”
