Effective and efficient patient recruitment activities often mark a successful beginning of any clinical trial or research project, however, identified clinical data that contains PII and PHI information is highly sensitive and require specific policies and procedures to safeguard it. Before any identified clinical data is delivered for research purposes, all researchers and clinicians need to fulfill the requirements and comply with the security policies.
Identified data provides an additional level of detail that often includes each patient's name, gender, birthday, contact information as well as Medical Record Number and address. In order to get access to such data, the Clinical Data Team at UMMS, IT will review all requests to ensure the dissemination of such data follows the existing security policy and protocols.
For more information or questions about identified data, contact the Clinical Data Team, Data Sciences & Technology, IT.
