Deidentification Service

Simple, safe and secure data de-identification to ensure privacy and accelerate research.

About the Deidentification Service

Our De-Identification Service is a proprietary application that converts clear clinical data into anonymised clinical datasets for safe sharing and secondary use within research projects.


Developed in line with the highest standards of information governance, it places full control into the hands of a single data owner, allowing them to perform the requisite de-identification functions within their own secure environment.

This service is simple to install and run via a command-line or graphical user interface, and incorporates full role-based access to ensure compliance with local security policies. Re-identification can only occur if required and permitted to reduce the risk of security breaches.


  • Role-based access
  • Audit logging
  • CSV and XML file processing (high-or low-volume)
  • 14 core anonymisation plug-ins
  • Create your own plug-ins


  • Fully configurable
  • Reduces the risk of security breaches
  • Tracks all activity
  • Delivers visibility of data ownership and responsibility
