Mission

Our mission is straightforward and simple: Balancing Privacy and Scientific Integrity

De-identification of healthcare data provides great benefits to both individuals and society.
De-identification importantly protects individual privacy. De-identified health data also
serves as the engine driving numerous scientific advances and improvements in
healthcare.

However, HIPAA “safe harbor ” de-identification imposes significant limitations for many
valuable uses of healthcare data. The “inconvenient truth” is that poorly implemented de-
identification can destroy the scientific accuracy of many statistical analyses, leading to
bad decisions and bad science.

Fortunately, well-designed “statistical de-identification ” can balance both privacy and
scientific integrity. dEpid/dt Consulting is dedicated to providing strong protections for
privacy while preserving accuracy of analytic results. By doing so, we seek to protect an
essential foundation for the improvement of healthcare and personal privacy.
