Data Filtering

In accordance with HIPAA and various contractual obligations, the STARR data repository filters out certain patients and clinical encounters that are deemed not permissible for research use.

If your data contains a patient whose complete clinical record contains one or more encounters that have been filtered out by this policy, you will see an asterisk next to that patient's entry in the list of patients in the Chart Review tool.

If you let your mouse hover over the patient banner in the chart, you will see a pop-up explaining the meaning of the asterisk.
