Secondary use of the EHR via pseudonymisation.

  title={Secondary use of the EHR via pseudonymisation.},
  author={Klaus Pommerening and Michael Reng},
  journal={Studies in health technology and informatics},
The Electronic Health Record (EHR) has many secondary uses, such as health economy and health care research, or disease specific clinical or epidemiological research. For these uses in general the patient identity is not needed, therefore the data must be anonymised or pseudonymised. Whereas for one-time use of the data this procedure is straightforward, long-term data accumulation or the necessity of re-identification require a more sophisticated approach. This paper describes possible model…

Multi-centric Universal Pseudonymisation for Secondary Use of the EHR

A pseudonymisation system is introduced which enables a multi-centric universal pseudonymisation, meaning that a patient's identity will result in the same pseudonym, regardless of which participating study center the patient data is collected.

Recognition and Pseudonymization of Personal Data in Paper-Based Health Records

The MEDSEC system for the recognition and pseudonymization of personal data in paper-based health records is presented, which integrates unique methods for automatically identifying personal and medical data and automatically pseudonymizing the personal data.

An IHE-based architecture for cross-patient and cross-domain secondary use of EHR data is proposed and the re-use of existing electronic medical documents in EHRs for research and other fields of secondary application holds enormous potential for the future.

Pseudonymization for Secondary Use of Cloud Based Electronic Health Records

A security solution for cloud based eHealth systems to facilitate storing and secondary use of EHR (electronic health records) records by utilizing a proposed pseudonym scheme and communication protocols to protect the privacy of patients.

This paper has proposed a Patient Controlled mechanism using the pseudonymization technique for ensuring the security and privacy of Electronic Health records and is simple and efficiently ensures the privacy of patient data.

Formal Modelling of (De)Pseudonymisation: A Case Study in Health Care Privacy

This work introduces coalition graphs, a graphical representation of knowledge of personal information to study data minimisation, and shows how this representation allows identification of privacy issues in existing infrastructures.

Pseudonymization of Radiology Data for Research Purposes

Various software architectures are explored to enable the implementation of an imaging research database that can be incremented in time and can be used to enable electronic health record (EHR) secondary usage such as public surveillance and research, while maintaining patient confidentiality.

Secure Access to Emergency Data in an e-Health Architecture

This work provides a novel ad-hoc authentication mechanism for emergency data, which is based on the notion of pseudonyms, and guarantees appropriate security for personal data.



Security without identification: transaction systems to make big brother obsolete
