  1. Keith,

    I'm interested in the subject of de-identification of CDAs. The material in this IHE document is a bit too "abstract" for my taste. It's a nice overview of many of the relevant considerations/concerns but it doesn't get down to the "cookbook" level for how to actually approach de-identification of CDAs.

    In Appendix B.2 on line ~870 there is a reference to a practical real-world example of CDA de-identification ("An example of a de-identification plan for a bio-surveillance is available at ftp://"). Unfortunately, the ftp address is empty! Any idea where to find that?
