MedAdvisor may use patient data in de-identified and aggregate form for commercial or research purposes in working with clients, partners, research affiliates and NGOs.
De-identified means that all information that could be used to connect an element of data to the pharmacy or patient to which it belongs has been removed. Names and contact details, notes/comments and details of individual transactions and interactions by the patient have been removed.
Aggregate means that data/statistics have been grouped and summed or averaged across multiple patients. This means that viewers of such data cannot see individual records relating to only one patient, but instead see grouped or averaged data, such as state or national averages, adherence levels of all patients taking X medication, Tap-To-Refill usage rates of all patients with more than three prescription medications, etc. Aggregate data must include data from ten or more patients to be considered aggregate, to further ensure that individual patient data cannot be in any way inferred from results.
Outside of the appropriate uses of patient data outlined above, the only sharing/use of data with 3rd parties (including published reports and studies) is after de-identification and aggregation have been applied – thus ensuring confidential data is always kept private.
