De-ID Data Anonymization Technology

De-ID assists researchers in de-identifying and anonymizing qualitative data to ensure participant anonymity. In addition to flagging all HIPAA safe harbor identifiers, De-ID highlights potentially identifying variables that, in combination with other details, might re-identify individuals.

De-ID is anticipated to be available for organizational access in 2024. Please select "Learn More" to be placed on our first-access list.
