Federal privacy laws allow for an individual or group of individuals to serve as "Honest Brokers" within their institutions. The honest broker de-identifies data to be used for research, essentially allowing researchers some flexibility in using data from systems such as an electronic health record and providing protection to the individuals whose data are being used for research. To ensure integrity of the service, the Honest Broker must be listed on the study protocol and must otherwise be independent of the research team.
CBMi's data reporting and management group provides an Honest Broker service as a part of its more comprehensive EHR data extraction and management services.
