A method for generating synthetic longitudinal health data

Getting access to administrative health data for research is difficult and time-consuming due to privacy regulations. This paper assessed the feasibility of generating and sharing synthetic administrative health data using a recurrent deep learning model. The privacy assessment concluded that attribution disclosure risk was substantially less than the typical acceptable risk threshold. Results also show that the synthetic dataset was suitably similar to the real data.
Following the acquisition of Replica Analytics by Aetion, the generative AI technology previously known as Replica Synthesis is now Aetion® Generate and continues to create privacy-enhancing synthetic data.
