|Project Title||SAS Macro Toolkit: De-Identification|
Thursday, March 24, 2016
The Sentinel SAS® toolkit library contains stand-alone programming tools written to standardize routine programming procedures. Each tool is a self-contained SAS macro that executes a very specific task. These tools are used in combination to facilitate development of the Sentinel Modular Programs and other programs designed to run on data that adhere to the Sentinel Common Data Model (SCDM). The De-identification tool uses a randomization method to de-identify user-specified fields in a dataset, in order to minimize the risk of sharing or disseminating identifiable, individual-level information.
