We fully expect that demand will accelerate as more and more customers discover how easy it is de-identify data and make it available for secondary use
Morrisville, NC (PRWEB) January 20, 2016
d-Wise, a leading life science and healthcare technology solutions provider, announced today that they have signed another enterprise license agreement with a Top-10 Pharmaceutical company for their industry leading clinical trial de-identification software solution – Blur. The signing highlights d-Wise’s leadership role and continued success in delivering de-identification software and services to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical marketplace. AstraZeneca, d-Wise’s first Blur enterprise customer, is now using the solution in production, and d-Wise is actively engaged in multiple consulting projects across the industry regarding de-identification as it relates to both internal and external data sharing initiatives.
The Blur de-identification solution is specifically designed to address patient privacy and support clinical data transparency and sharing initiatives. Blur delivers high performance, application-driven, data de-identification to safeguard patient privacy while reducing the overall costs associated with the de-identification process. The solution has integrated workflow and controls, learned intelligence, and accommodates established as well as emerging de-identification rules. d-Wise continues to rapidly innovate, extending Blur’s capabilities since its initial launch in June 2015.
“d-Wise is excited to have already signed another enterprise software agreement for Blur. We fully expect that demand will accelerate as more and more customers discover how easy it is de-identify data and make it available for secondary use”, stated John Leveille, CEO at d-Wise. “Many companies talk about developing impactful software solutions for clinical research. d-Wise is delivering those solutions today.”
Biopharmaceutical companies have been anonymizing data on a small scale for years, but the era of clinical trial data transparency and sharing initiatives has changed the rules. The need to share clinical trial data with external researchers and internal planning, modeling and exploration teams has never been greater. As data sharing needs accelerate in terms of volume and urgency, the old ways of delivering anonymized data are no longer practical. Blur was developed by pharmaceutical industry experts and represents the most modern approach to patient-level data de-identification available today. The solution requires dramatically less Information Technology support than alternative scripting tools, while bringing scalability to the clinical trials de-identification process.
Blur is easily deployed through a simple browser interface, and incorporates a wide variety of clinical trials and healthcare de-identification rules that can be customized to individual projects. The availability of a point-and-click interface, instead of a programming interface, means that Blur can be used by a broad set of users. This provides considerably more flexibility than the current approaches being used today.
