Conucting clinical epidemiological studies, as well as establishing registries and cohorts, require data processing conpliant with data protection regulations. According to Art. 32 para. 1a EU-GDPR, the use of pseudonyms helps to ensure an adequate level of data protection when processing data.
For this purpose, the Trusted Third Party has developed the gPAS®. This software tool serves to generate and manage pseudonyms. The domain concept and the free definition of alphabets, as well as algorithms for generating pseudonyms, allow researchers to generate different pseudonyms for each data source, application context (e.g. collection, publication) or location/ study site.
