Expert Determination

Like Policy Adjustments, project owners can use Expert Determination to increase a data set's utility while retaining the amount of k-anonymization that upholds de-identification requirements. With this feature enabled, users can redistribute the noise across multiple columns of a data source within a project to make specific columns more useful for their analysis.

While Policy Adjustments are available on all equalized projects with a noise reduction purpose applied, Expert Determination is only available on projects with Re-identification Prohibited.HIPAA De-identification or Re-identification Prohibited.Expert Determination purposes applied, since Expert Determination is specific to the HIPAA De-identification Global Policy.

Once a policy has been adjusted, Expert Determination provides a downloadable report that contains a statistical analysis of the data source to assess the very small re-identification probability indicated by the purpose.
