Health Analytics company empowers physicians to access oncology data

An innovative health analytics company wanted to unlock previously inaccessible data spanning multiple disparate health systems and EMRs.

By integrating Privacy Analytics software into their data platform, they automated statistical measurements for HIPAA Expert Determination, enabling oncologists to access usable, searchable, real-world cancer information.

Health technology company with global operations accelerates R&D and improves data-driven innovation

A large health tech company sought to improve the efficacy of product testing and R&D through more representative data. With privacy being a top corporate priority, they sought the most rigorous privacy solution for HIPAA de-identification and GDPR anonymization.

With Privacy Analytics software, they achieve the highest level of auditable proof – quickly and at scale – thereby proving differentiation in their resultant products for healthcare partners.

Health technology & analytics company builds privacy into its product for differentiation and customer trust

A company that operates globally, including in Europe under GDPR, offers data-driven services to life sciences companies.

They engaged Privacy Analytics to design and create a custom privacy solution for one of their commercial offerings that collects data and provides important insights. This solution ensures privacy protection is enforced right from the point of data collection with physicians, making sure no personal data is inadvertently included.

This helps the company gain trust by proving their commitment to privacy and sets them apart by providing a seamless, cost-efficient end-to-end offering.

Large payer enhances privacy, accelerates data exchange, and improves the usefulness of de-identified data

This large payer used Privacy Analytics software to automate HIPAA Expert Determination in-house. By leveraging our risk visualization software, they were able to both enhance privacy and improve the usefulness of de-identified data – all while safely accelerating data exchange.

European hospitals safely share data with researchers to accelerate cancer research

To unlock insight from patient data while enhancing privacy, European oncology hospitals used Privacy Analytics software to enable safe and GDPR-compliant exchanges of data while ensuring the protection of patient privacy.

Registry makes sensitive data safely accessible to improve maternal and newborn outcomes

A large registry integrating information on pregnancy, birth, and newborn care sought to make a positive and lasting contribution to the health of mothers, newborns, and children.

By integrating Privacy Analytics software, they make useful, detailed information accessible to health practitioners and researchers to support performance measurement, quality improvement, policy design, and research.

National health system unblocks internal barriers to data access with a Five Safes approach to data enablement

A large national health system needed to develop an acceptable strategy for handling, using, and reusing sensitive data. This strategy contributed to its mandate and, ultimately, patient care in the context of new privacy regulations and public expectations.

Together with our client, we delivered in-depth policy analysis and co-developed the strategy, anchored on the Five Safes framework, that balanced the urgent need for data access with the imperatives for privacy.

The strategy earned the trust of key stakeholders and accelerated the exchange and use of data by being practical in design and implementation.
