KI Design created a roadmap for a new province-wide de-identification service
Alberta Healthcare ensuring that all Albertans have equal access to the best medical services available is a top priority for the government. Leading-edge research, technology, and clinical skills contribute to maintaining a classy health care environment in Alberta.
The health system is publicly administered and funded (health care funding comes from one-third of the entire provincial budget). Some of these include full or partial coverage for long-term children’s immunisation, seniors’ benefits, palliative care and home care. The Ministry of Health and Wellness develops and ensures compliance with health care policy in Ki.
Individual patients identify details about healthcare data can be safely disclosed to the AHDR (Alberta Healthcare Data Repository) to keep them safe from the third parties.
KI Design assessed the current state of AHDR de-identification services’ governance, de-identification standards, technological capacities and service provision. After that, we designed new business and technical architecture to provide an implementation roadmap that would allow AHDR to achieve its objectives.
The business architecture provided by KI Design which outlined the goals and constraints of the AHDR de-identification service, the needs of its internal and external clients, and its business function model for service delivery. These variables guided suggestions for enhanced strategies and techniques identified with data utilise, de-ID, and disclosure.A proposal key was the reception of a hazard based de-distinguishing proof process, which through the information de-recognizable proof and divulgence practices depend on target measures of re-ID chance.
KI Design outlined the functional requirements for the technical architecture as well as non-functional system requirements in such a response time which processing volumes and storage space, for a de-identification application suited to AHDR’s needs. The Privacy Analytics software to AHDR’s existing technical environment to used the requirements tailor.
- Assessment of de-identification procedures
- Outline needs and goals in new business architecture
- Adoption of a risk-based de-identification process
- De-identification and disclosure practices now based on objective measures of risk
- Designed to fit the client’s existing business model and technical environment
- Masks only as much information as necessary to preserve the utility of the data
- More efficient, user-friendly, and better-organized client services
