The FARR Institute,
Due to data privacy issus, routinely collected data of different sources in pseudonymized (e.g.MBDS) minimum basic data set from the Federal Ministry of Health, which up to 2015 even don't have a personal identifier). This makes statistical analysis for decision support and health care planning very difficult, since no statements on patient pathways can be made. Data from insurance carriers (FOKO) is event based: each time a hospital reports to the insurance carrier a new data entry is generated. To enable efficient, significant and quality assured data analysis for the patient centred assertions a record linkage of these episodes is required.
