Data Enclaves for Sharing Information Derived From Clinical and Administrative Data

    Basic Details

    The authors of this article describe and review the use of data enclaves for sharing information derived from clinical and administrative data. They argue that data enclaves address two major barriers to data sharing. First, they allow health systems to protect patients’ interests and their own by maintaining physical and operational control, permitting the systems to opt in or out of proposed analyses. Second, they obviate the need to build new secure systems.
