Finally, a Scalable Solution for De-identifying and Anonymizing Clinical Trial Data and Managing Risk 

d-Wise developed Blur, an application-based de-identification solution, to apply the emerging rules for de-identification and integrate the execution of these rules into a comprehensive workflow-driven process that provides automated documentation, traceability and audit trails. Blur provides an enhanced platform for de-identification, a critical tool for any life sciences firm submitting data to regulatory agencies, or sharing clinical trial findings externally or internally.

The platform provides sophisticated risk management and robust data anonymization controls for biostatisticians and for medical writers charged with producing clinical study reports in compliance with EMA Policy70 guidance.

As an industry solution, Blur is updated as de-identification and redaction rules evolve and converge, and will provide a modern and superior alternative to the development and use of SAS-based de-identification scripts.

Are you Policy 0070 Ready?

Policy 0070 from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) specifies how publicly shared CSRs should be presented – specifically in terms of patient anonymization. The EMA’s ruling on CSR treatment is just the beginning. Ultimately, the original data behind the reports will also have to be anonymized, requiring additional consideration and processes so that companies don’t get caught out – or become so lost in their de-identification efforts that they lose track of the complete, unaltered findings.

Although Europe has taken the lead on these matters, the FDA will likely follow suit, implicating U.S. based life sciences organizations to comply.  With Blur, companies can be ready.


Are you a clinical trial expert?
So is Blur.

Blur understands clinical trial data structures, workflow and industry de-identification rules. Using Blur, you’ll be able to meet the regulatory and ethical challenges associated with re-purposing clinical trial data assets for secondary use, preserving data utility and documenting traceability for downstream data consumers.
