Mayo Clinic Completes Deidentification of Dataset

Mayo Clinic announced a significant achievement of the newly formed Clinical Data Analytics Platform: completion of the deidentification of structured portions of 10 million Mayo Clinic patient records, along with 2.5 million unstructured portions.

   Structured portions of data include laboratory values, diagnosis codes, vital signs, and medications, while unstructured portions of data contain clinical notes. Without the data leaving Mayo Clinic’s possession or providing patient-identifying information, the Clinical Data Analytics Platform enables researchers and clinicians to extract the knowledge and insights within the deidentified dataset to advance medical research and clinical outcomes. The Clinical Data Analytics Platform is a venture under the Mayo Clinic Platform, a strategic initiative to improve health care through insights and knowledge derived from data. The Clinical Data Analytics Platform applies advanced data analytics on deidentified data from Mayo Clinic and other organizations, as well as vast information in scientific literature, to advance medicine and improve patient health, like identifying targets and biomarkers for new drugs and matching patients with therapies.
