How does CPCSSN ensure privacy and confidentiality?

CPCSSN does not extract any directly identifiable patient information, such as healthcare number, name, address, phone number, etc. All patients, providers, and clinics are assigned a random study ID; no names of clinics or providers are included in the CPCSSN database. There is additional de-identification software that is run to fully anonymize the data before the CPCSSN data are provided for research use.
