In conjunction with the All of Us Research Program, the authors looked at Electronic Health Records to understand how fragmented patient data was across a variety of health provider organizations, using a Privacy-Preserving Record Linkage tool in participating sites to generate a unique set of keyed encrypted hashes. Of the 5,831,238 individuals, 458,680 patients had data at more than one institution. Patients with some care fragmentation were almost 10 times as likely to have conflicting or inconsistent demographic data.
Advancing the Frontier of Privacy-Preserving Technology in Healthcare
Datavant’s mission is to connect the world’s health data, and make it accessible for valuable research and analytics. The traditional approach of aggregating data creates a direct tradeoff between individual privacy and analytical capability. With health data, this isn’t good enough. The stakes are high — data-driven decisions can save lives, just…
