Open Pseudonymiser

openpseudonymisation.org The University Of Nottingham has created a free open source standalone windows desktop application called OpenPseudonymiser which allows users to pseudonymise datasets by creating a digest of one or more columns of a CSV file.  Can be used internationally if UK NHS Number validation features are ignored.

Health Informatics Forum

is a social networking website for health informatics professionals and students from around the world.

Administered by Dr Chris Paton – a Clinical Research Fellow (Medical Doctor) at Oxford University, the site has over 7,000 registered members and provides access to Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) materials that use content developed through a $10 million grant from the Office of the National Coordinator in the US.

There’s a Forum and Chat for members, a Blog, Links, etc and it has a jobs board with a number of advertised US-based roles which will benefit our wider audience as it starts to show more international postings.

We find the resource directory is useful as a source of links on a variety of topics (journals, books, institutions, etc) and you’ll find us (health-informatics.co) on the education links page under “international” programs.
