The creation of systems for assembling and analyzing medical data is currently one of the major factors in advancing the speed of medical research. To ensure patient privacy, legal limitations have been placed on these systems. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act requires that certain types potential identifiers be removed from the data before it can be shared freely. The process of removing the identifiers is called de-identification. The purpose of this project is to create a de-identification filter for the MIMIC database, a system that retrieves and organizes data from the intensive care unit at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
