Anonymization Methodology Course for Clinical Trial Data
May 7, 2015 - May 8, 2015
Join us May 7th and 8th for a Privacy Analytics Anonymization Methodology Course for Clinical Trial Data. Partnered with IMS, the two-day course will be hosted at IMS’s London Office.
Many pharmaceutical and medical device companies are moving towards greater clinical trials transparency–which includes the disclosure of clinical trial data. The sharing of this data is intended for use in secondary analysis of that data by researchers, educators, and industry.
One of the fundamental components of sharing clinical trials data is protecting the privacy of the participants.
Privacy protection is achieved through anonymization of all information before it is released, while ensuring that the analytic utility of the anonymized data is sufficient to at least reproduce original study results and allow innovative analysis. Anonymization needs to be defensible in the eyes of regulators and the public.
This two-day comprehensive course will provide attendees with the skills needed to manage the risk of re-identification when clinical trial data is shared for secondary purposes. Multiple techniques and controls are covered to ensure that the risk is very small and defensible in the eyes of regulators. We will go through a series of case studies of anonymizing data sets, and discuss specific concerns and issues with small data sets and rare diseases.
