Streamlining Healthcare Data Anonymization with ShareMedix at Tirol Kliniken Innsbruck
Client Story – Medical data anonymization for Tirol Kliniken Innsbruck
About the Project
Tirol Kliniken GmbH, the largest healthcare company in western Austria, provides comprehensive medical care through its network of facilities. As the backbone of medical services in Tyrol, Tirol Kliniken GmbH serves a significant number of patients, with a large workforce and an extensive range of treatments and surgical procedures.
ShareMedix, a groundbreaking artificial intelligence (AI) solution, has successfully implemented advanced algorithms to automate the recognition and anonymization of patient data. With its extensively trained and continuously learning AI algorithms, ShareMedix accurately identifies and renders patient data unrecognizable. This innovative approach eliminates the need for manual anonymization of medical documents such as hospital discharge reports, doctors’ letters, and findings reports. By automatically anonymizing patient data, ShareMedix ensures compliance with the TGF (Tyrolean Health Fund) standard and upholds patient privacy.
The deployment of ShareMedix posed several challenges that required careful consideration and tailored solutions. The AI algorithm had to be trained to selectively anonymize specific patient data while preserving essential information that should remain visible. Given the medical nature of the documents, it was crucial to train the algorithm to recognize and handle specialized medical terminology effectively. Overcoming these challenges ensured the accurate and secure anonymization of patient data. The solution was required to run on local servers of the hospitals, as well as include the mechanism of further adjustments of the model on the new data, without the usage of GPU.
- Enhanced Data Protection: ShareMedix’s automated anonymization process safeguards patient privacy and ensures compliance with regulatory standards, such as the TGF standard.
- Time and Cost Savings: By automating the anonymization process, ShareMedix streamlines workflows and reduces the manual effort and associated costs involved in anonymizing medical documents.
- Improved Efficiency: The accurate and efficient recognition of patient data by ShareMedix reduces the risk of errors and enhances overall operational efficiency.
- Scalable and Adaptive Solution: ShareMedix’s AI algorithms are continuously learning and evolving, enabling the system to adapt to new data patterns and remain effective as the volume of medical documents increases.
Solution's Unique Features:
- Advanced AI Algorithms: ShareMedix harnesses the power of cutting-edge AI technology to accurately identify and anonymize patient data, ensuring high precision and reliability.
- Tailored Medical Terminology Training: The AI algorithm has been specifically trained to understand and handle the intricate medical terminology used in healthcare documents, enabling precise anonymization while preserving relevant information.
- Compliance with Regulatory Standards: ShareMedix adheres to the TGF standard and other relevant healthcare data protection regulations, ensuring data privacy and legal compliance.
- Intuitive design: The employees of the hospital interact with the application via an intuitive user interface in the web browser, which allows them to easily upload and anonymize new data, as well as make any needed corrections or make additional notes on the documents directly in the app. Based on them, ShareMedix can continuously learn and adapt to work more effectively with the new documents.
The implementation of ShareMedix at Tirol Kliniken Innsbruck has revolutionized data anonymization processes, enabling efficient and secure handling of sensitive patient information. By automating the recognition and anonymization of medical documents, ShareMedix has significantly improved data privacy and compliance while reducing manual effort and costs. With its unique features and robust AI algorithms, ShareMedix sets a new standard in healthcare data anonymization, ensuring the utmost protection for patients and healthcare providers alike.
“The increasing need for anonymization was time-consuming and expensive. With the ShareMedix intelligent software, we can handle all of this with less time and costs for our staff and operations.” – Pietro Lucillo, MA, IT-Project Manager, Tirol Kliniken
