Linking community and technology to enable FAIR data
Use our Master Person Index with use case specific keys
By using our Master Person Index (MPI) it is possible to automatically link the subjects from your dataset to other datasets, provided the proper informed consent is in place, like the electronic health records or the Maastricht study. It is also possible to share your dataset with other researchers by giving them different keys per subject (we call this double pseudonimization).
How to create use-case specific keys
- If another researcher requests access to your dataset you should first contact one of our data stewards.
- Together with the data steward you define the proper strategy (anonymization, pseudonymization, double pseudonimization, original key).
Our Master Person Index creates the keys and places them in a copy of your dataset.
Together with the data steward you will check and approve the new dataset.
The other researcher can now be authorized to use the new dataset.
