Using sensitive health data comes with privacy challenges

Organizations working with health data face growing pressure to innovate and collaborate with wider ecosystems. Driving greater advancements in patient health has become a priority. Insight-rich data is the key.

But using sensitive health data beyond its original purpose—whether internal or external—comes with substantial privacy challenges.

You need reliable de-identification

Health data that is subject to
HIPAAHealth Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
offers profound societal benefits. But datasets can be huge, timelines are tight, and you need to preserve the most useful data while protecting privacy.
That’s why the HIPAA Expert Determination method of de-identification is likely your best bet.
