Data De-identification & Anonymization Solutions

Protected Health Information (PHI) 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. Shaip provides de-identification with human-in-the-loop for greater accuracy in anonymizing sensitive data in text content. This approach leverages HIPAA de-identification methods, including expert determination and safe harbor, to transform, mask, delete, or otherwise obscure sensitive information. HIPAA identifies the following as PHI:


Protected health information (phi)

  • Names
  • Addresses/locations
  • Dates and ages
  • Telephone numbers
  • Vehicle identifiers & serial numbers, including license plate nos
  • Fax numbers
  • Device identifiers and serial numbers
  • Email addresses
  • Web Universal Resource Locators (URLs)
  • Social security numbers
  • Internet Protocol (IP) addresses
  • Medical record numbers
  • Biometric identifiers, including finger and voice prints
  • Health plan beneficiary numbers
  • Full-face photographs and any comparable images
  • Account numbers
  • Certificate/license numbers
  • Any other unique identifying number, characteristic, or code
    • 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

HIPAA Expert Determination

Healthcare organizations are tasked with innovating and forming larger networks while managing the sensitive use of health data, which raises privacy concerns. To balance the societal benefits of large health datasets with individual privacy, the HIPAA Expert Determination method for de-identification is recommended. Our services help organizations of any size align their data with HIPAA standards, mitigating legal, financial, and reputational risks and enhancing healthcare services and outcomes.

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.
