There are several big data processing and data-centric protection challenges in biomedicine and health care today, including:

  • health insurance companies running promotional and fraud detection data warehouses which require fast transformations (like sorting, joining, aggregation and reformatting of claim-related data)
  • genomic data manipulation and analytics
  • pharmaceutical companies manipulating and reporting on sales, manufacturing, and supply chain data
  • HIPAA-covered entities and their business associates (like marketers or processors of patient and prescription databases) who need to mask and encrypt protected health information (PHI) to comply with Safe Harbor Rule or Expert Determination Method via de-identification and risk scoring
  • DBAs and developers requiring safe, referentially correct test data that does not come from production

The applicable platforms, and products in these environments are:

  • IRI Voracity - to discover, integrate (ETL, federate, cleanse), migrate (convert, replicate), govern (mask prototype, track), and analyze patient data 
  • IRI FACT (Fast Extract) - to unload Oracle, SQL Server, and other databases, and run optionally with other IRI products
  • IRI CoSort (SortCL program) - to filter, sort, join, lookup, aggregate, remap, and report on files and tables
  • IRI FieldShield - to mask, encrypt and decrypt, hash, pseudonymize, or otherwise de-identify PHI and other personally identifiable information (PII) in databases and flat files
  • IRI CellShield - to discover, then mask, encrypt and pseudonymize (and audit) PHI in Excel spreadsheets
  • IRI RowGen - to populate test DBs and files with production-quality data (without requiring real data)
