Simple, Safe, and Cost-Effective
MSA’s state-of-the-art DE-ID Engine performs two functions: 1. De-identification of the data set (including removing, encrypting, and obfuscating patient information) and, 2. Insertion of encrypted patient tokens, which are used to link matching individual records across different data sets. MSA has a proven record of generating reliable, trust-worthy, site-specific tokens.
The MSA DE-ID Engine can be configured to:
An example token strategy is to create a token using the first name, last name, and date of birth fields. All other patient identifiers in the data set are de-identified using encryption or obfuscation processes as required by the Expert Determination statistical certification. The result: a de-identified data set ready for patient level analytics and longitudinal patient alignment, and to be shared within and outside the organization.
