Power Clinical Research with More Precise Real-World Data

Every research population is made up of individual people and their unique circumstances. The more clearly you can understand each person, the better-equipped you can be to improve outcomes. This understanding requires data — but in healthcare, the data you need is too often scattered in different systems or silos, locked away due to privacy laws, or may not be accurately linked to patients.

To conduct the most impactful research and generate real-world evidence of improved outcomes, today’s healthcare professionals need real-world data (RWD) that delivers a complete picture of each patient’s clinical and non-clinical records.

With patient-centric tokenization from LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, healthcare professionals can access some of the most complete healthcare datasets available — all securely de-identified with the LexisNexis® Gravitas™ Token; all ready to be matched and linked to enhance study designs, ensure diverse representation in study participants, enrich data analysis to uncover new insights, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.


Tokenization Use Cases

Health Data Providers

  • Match records across datasets with precision
  • Gain a longitudinal view of patient journeys
  • Combine your data with other relevant datasets to enable new use cases


Unlock Superior Insights With a Smart Token

first gen tokenizationCurrent first-generation tokenization solutions can securely de-identify healthcare data, but they cannot provide the most complete picture of every patient journey. This is because first-generation de-identification technology is not coupled with the sophisticated linking capabilities found only with a smart token using referential matching.

Unlike first generation tokenization technologies that use deterministic or probabilistic matching, the smart tokenization that powers the LexisNexis Gravitas Token pairs secure de-identification with a layer of referential data for superior linking. Datasets from Gravitas Core, Gravitas Network, and customer inputs are matched “behind the firewall” against a referential data layer.

The Referential Data Layer — powered by proprietary LexisNexis Risk Solutions data — matches datasets with unparalleled precision and confidence.

smart tokenizationThese matches are tokenized and returned to the customer fully de-identified and research-ready. The result is a smart token that delivers the highly precise patient matching needed to unlock new health research insights.

Drawing on a legacy of more than half a century of data security and privacy at LexisNexis, the Gravitas Token enables HIPAA-compliant use of real-world data and delivers a complete patient view that comprises social determinants of health (SDoH), medical claims, mortality, and additional invaluable data points from Gravitas Network partners. With granular access to these high-quality datasets, healthcare users can unlock the detailed insights they need to assess longitudinal outcomes, expand research capabilities, and effectively design studies.

Benefits of a Patient-Centric Token

tokenization icon 1

Use a More Powerful Smart Token

The LexisNexis Gravitas Token provides secure access and interoperability with the rich datasets available within the LexisNexis Gravitas Network. Gravitas contains more than 10,000 de-identified data sources, tied to billions of records — for a total of more than six billion sets of personally identifiable information, giving insight into lifetime changes and choices across more than 280 million adult identities.

Gain a Complete Picture of Patients

The Gravitas Network includes high quality, fully de-identified real-world datasets that offer a detailed view of patient journeys — from medical events and electronic health records (EHR), to social determinants of health (SDoH) and more — for a true longitudinal view that is critical for research in precision medicine and care outcomes.

Exchange Data Securely

Next-generation tokenization removes identifiable information from data, replacing it with de-identified tokens that keep sensitive data secure. Personally identifiable information (PII) remains fully within each organization’s control, while tokenization keeps data secure during exchanges and transactions with third parties. Our smart token delivers superior data quality and linking, coupled with best-in-class secure data de-identification.

Independent experts have determined that the Gravitas Token meets thresholds for de-identification under HIPAA and have validated that the Gravitas Token mitigates risk of re-identification.

Remove Barriers to Care

Social determinants of health impact at least 50% of health outcomes. Our data solutions are built to enhance understanding of patients’ risk and potential barriers to care. With the complex social determinants of health, medical claims, and mortality data available through the Gravitas Token, health organizations can get a clear view to patient-centric decision-making that drives improved outcomes.

Gravitas™ Integrated Healthcare Data Solutions

The Gravitas Token powers healthcare organizations’ connections to the Gravitas Network of health data assets.

The Gravitas solution is built around proprietary healthcare datasets owned by LexisNexis Risk Solutions and high-quality data from our network partners. Between LexisNexis Risk Solutions and our network partners, Gravitas provides access to a premium collection of America’s healthcare datasets, which include SDoH, medical claims, and mortality data on the majority of U.S. adults.

Fully integrated with the Gravitas architecture, the Gravitas Token is trusted next-generation tokenization technology that ensures secure de-identification of data for use in clinical, research, and study settings by healthcare and life sciences organizations.1

1) The linking of any additional dataset that is not reasonably available to the Gravitas Token or Gravitas Core datasets requires independent expert determination of HIPAA compliance. Access to and use of regulated data is limited to use for a permissible purpose and subject to completion of the LexisNexis Risk Solution credentialing process.

A Smart Token for Life Sciences

With the Gravitas Token, life sciences professionals gain a single source of comprehensive de-identified real-world data. Fully research-ready, Gravitas data can be used to improve study designs, verify discoveries, recruit the best trial participants, and evaluate real-world effectiveness beyond trials. Acquire the high-quality insights you need to deliver timely care interventions and better, more equitable patient care.

Gravitas Network

Data Network Partnership

Healthcare data organizations can partner with LexisNexis Risk Solutions to contribute proprietary data to the Gravitas architecture, opening a new channel for data sales and gaining access to our data for resale. Securely de-identified through the Gravitas Token, this proprietary data can be combined with other partners’ high-quality data to enhance the Gravitas architecture and contribute to improved insights and more equitable outcomes in healthcare.
