Data De-identification & Anonymization Solutions

The process of data de-identification and data anonymization ensures the removal of publicly available data such as names and social security numbers that may directly or indirectly connect an individual to their data. Moreover, Shaip also provides proprietary APIs that can anonymize sensitive data in text content with extremely high accuracy. Our APIs then leverage HIPAA de-identification processes such as expert HIPAA determination and safe harbor to transform, mask, delete, or otherwise obscure sensitive information.

Personal Identifiable Information (Pii)

Personal Identifiable Information (PII)

PII Data De-identification or PII Data Anonymization is the process of de-identifying any information that permits the identity of an individual to whom the identified information applies or can be reasonably inferred by either direct or indirect means. In short, Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is any data that can contact, locate, or identify a specific individual.

Few of the HIPAA De-identification Standard identifiers or data elements that might be used to identify an individual include:

PII includes: name, email, home address, phone #
If StandaloneIf paired with another identifier
Social Security NumberCitizenship or Immigration status

Protected Health Information (Phi)

Protected Health Information (PHI)

PHI Data De-identification or PHI Data Anonymization is the process of de-identifying any information in a medical record that can be used to identify an individual; that was created, used, or disclosed in the course of providing a medical service, such as a diagnosis or treatment. In short Protected Health Information (PHI) is any data that can contact, locate, or identify a specific individual.

Few of the HIPAA identifiers or data elements that might be used to identify an individual include:

  • Medical images, records, health plan beneficiary, certificate, social security, and account numbers
  • Past, present, or future health or condition of an individual
  • Past, present, or future payment for the provision of healthcare to an individual
  • Every date linked directly to a person, such as date of birth, discharge date, date of death, and administration

Data de-identification, data masking, or data anonymization is the process of removal of all PHI/PII (personal health information / personally identifiable information) such as names and social security numbers that may directly or indirectly connect an individual to their data.

A de-identified patient data is health data in which a PHI (Personal Health Information) or PII (Personally Identifiable Information) is removed. Also known as PII masking, it involves the removal of details such as names, social security numbers and other personal details that may directly or indirectly connect an individual to their data, leading to the risk of re-identification.

PII refers to personally identifiable information, it is any data that can contact, locate, or identify a specific individual such as social security number (SSN), passport number, driver’s license number, taxpayer identification number, patient identification number, financial account number, credit card number, or Personal address information (street address, or email address. Personal telephone numbers).

PHI refers to personal health information in any form, including physical records (medical reports, lab test results, medical bills), electronic records (EHR), or spoken information (physician dictation).

There are two prominent data de-identification techniques. The first is the removal of direct identifiers and the second is the removal or alteration of other information that could potentially be used to re-identify or lead to an individual. At Shaip, we use precision data de-identification tools and standard operating procedures to ensure the process is as airtight and accurate as possible.
