Leveraging Unstructured Health Data
Healthcare organizations are responding to meaningful use and accountable care initiatives that focus on increasing the quality of care, improving patient safety and reducing costs. Analyzing patient-level data in electronic health records for secondary use is critical to driving these initiatives successfully.
Privacy and compliance and data analytic professionals will learn how their organizations can:
- Comply with HIPAA requirements for de-identifying unstructured data for secondary use;
- Discover personal information in text-based formats and apply risk-based rules to their de-identification;
- De-identify and mask unstructured data in text and XML formats; and,
- Determine risk metrics associated with de-identification and its quality for analysis.
