February 10, 2016
The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) has awarded a new technology transfer (STTR) grant to Clinacuity, to develop a new system to automatically de-identify clinical narrative text in the Electronic Health Record (CliniDeid), to then improve the availability of clinical text for secondary uses, as well as ameliorate the protection of patient data confidentiality. This project is realized in collaboration with the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute, the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Utah, the University of Utah Healthcare IT services, and the Huntsman Cancer Institute.
