Clinical Data Transparency


With increased transparency, there is a need for a common approach to protect the privacy of individuals involved in clinical trials. With this in mind, the Clinical Data Transparency Initiative was formed with a mission of developing a model approach for redacting privacy information found in clinical study reports and a model approach for the anonymization of patient-level data shared with the broader healthcare community.


This Initiative will enhance transparency and facilitate future research while preserving the privacy of patients, investigators and clinical trial staff. The model approach may also enable regulatory compliance, improve collective scientific knowledge and clinical practice and care for patients and bring consistency and quality by working across all stakeholder groups.
