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.
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.
