Our De-identification solutions facilitate compliance with legal and NHS data policy requirements on the treatment of Patient Identifiable Data (PID) for health care management, research and other secondary uses. Sapior solutions provide clear evidence of applying best practices to significantly reduce privacy breach risks.

All of our solutions are based on our de facto national standard Pseudonymisation engine, as used by the English NHS Spine Secondary Uses Service (SUS). They provide the most robust NHS-grade pseudonymisation to fully meet pseudonymisation functionality requirements for the Information Governance Toolkit.

Sapior solutions de-identify and re-identify

De-identification – Sapior de-identifies PID by replacing it with shapeable pseudonyms. This is done on a consistent basis so that patient records are distinguishable and linkable, but not identifiable.

Re-identification – The ability to roll back to PID is given on a case-by-case permission basis to relevant users. This re-identification process is automated and eliminates manual, error-prone and time-consuming encryption key management issues.
