A Case Study of De-identifying a Clinical Trial Data Set

November 5, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

On November 5, at 2PM EST (11AM PST), we invite you to join us for the webinar, A Case Study of De-identifying a Clinical Trial Data Set Using a Risk-based Method.

A Case Study on the De-identification of Clinical Trials Data

Many trial sponsors are starting to implement or have implemented clinical trial transparency initiatives for individual patient data (IPD). However, releasing unmodified IPD would put the clinical trial participants’ privacy at risk. New guidelines for the de-identification of clinical trials have been published, but there have been no demonstrations of the de-identification methods on real clinical trial data.

Privacy Analytics, in collaboration with Sanofi Pasteur, de-identified a vaccine clinical trial following these new guidelines.

Featuring key speakers  Khaled El Emam, CEO of Privacy Analytics, and Stephen Korte, Research Analyst, this webinar will:

  • Describe the process for de-identifying a Sanofi-Pasteur vaccine clinical trial dataset and what the outcome was;
  • Clarify how to apply re-identification risk analysis to clinical trial data sets; and,
  • Review what the right documentation looks like so your organization remains defensible.
