Privitar, a privacy engineering software company which closed a £12m Series A round led by Partech Ventures, has won a contract with NHS Digital to boost patient privacy.

NHS Digital hopes the contract will help it deliver a new software solution for the de-identification of patient information, which will help improve the way in which data is used across the NHS and social care.

Known as De-ID, the process has been designed to protect patient’s privacy by unlinking an individual’s record in a consistent way.

NHS Digital’s executive director of data, insights and statistics Tom Denwood said: "The health and care landscape is rapidly changing, and we can improve individual patient care if our systems can deliver a complete picture of their health and care. Although we already use various ways of de-identifying data across the NHS, the difference with De-ID is that it provides one, consistent way of doing this.
