“The healthcare industry collects and stores incredible amounts of data, yet very little of it can be shared due to HIPAA and other privacy regulations,” said Jeff Diamond, president, Health Care business of LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “The Gravitas Token maintains compliance with those restrictions1 while also liberating that data to be used for its intended purpose—to deliver better, more effective, patient-centric care.”
This year’s MedTech Breakthrough Awards program attracted more than 3,900 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.
One of the key differentiators of the Gravitas Token is its ability to link patients together across variations in patient identifiable information.
“Today’s tokenization solutions can securely de-identify healthcare data, but without referential data capabilities that accommodate for changes in a patient’s identifiable information, they cannot provide the most complete picture of a patient’s journey,” said Danielle Walsh, director, healthcare strategy, Health Care business of LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “The Gravitas Token uses a proprietary combination of datasets to create a singular, comprehensive, patient-centric token that links records across name changes, address changes, and other data points that impact health to create a truly longitudinal view of a patient.”
