Patient De-Identifier Utility


Patient De-Identifier Utility

The Patient De-Identifier (DEID) utility replaces identifiable patient data in a NextGen Healthcare database with realistic but false computer-generated values. The resulting database preserves all existing family relationships, visit information and medical conditions. A de-identified database can be safely used for conversion testing, user training, and other purposes without risking patient confidentiality.

DEID requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2, which means that the framework must be installed on any machine before you install DEID on that machine. Installing the framework will require a reboot. If you are installing on a workstation, this is likely not a problem. If you are installing on a server, you will need to inform your IT Group or System Administrator (if you have such a group in your organization) as they will need to coordinate the installation and reboot with other users of the server. Generally this means waiting until "non-working hours" to perform the update.

A License Key (sold separately) can be obtained by contacting the NextGen Healthcare Success Community, or by calling NextGen Healthcare Corporate Headquarters at (215) 657-7010.

If you have purchased the DEID and have not received a license key, please submit a NextGen Healthcare Success Community request and we will provide a license key as soon as possible.
