How We Protect Your Data
Protecting your individual health data is our primary goal. Here's how it works:
1. We will only work with qualified researchers, who must demonstrate both their research experience and how they protect patient privacy.
2. Each registered researcher then must specify and justify exactly what information they need to a Research Committee consisting of OHDC members, and sign a legal agreement. They will be provided with a randomized remote security access key that generates new passwords every 30 seconds.
3. The data will be anonymized, aggregated and encrypted before researchers can access it. Researchers will never have access to any information that can identify members personally. As additional security, member stock numbers will be stored on a secure, encrypted server.
4. If foul play is suspected, we will audit the researcher and, if necessary, revoke their privileges.
