Definition:

"De-identified Individual Level Information means information about an individual that has been modified or from which identifying or potentially identifying information has been removed in a way that minimizes the likelihood that an individual's identity can be determined by any reasonably foreseeable method. Methods of de-identifying information can include scrambling or encrypting identifying or potentially identifying information" (from section 1.01 (e) within An Agreement Respecting Access to Manitoba Information at the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (University of Manitoba) for Research Being Conducted by University Researchers Within The Secure Data Environment of MCHP - http://umanitoba.ca/admin/vp_admin/ofp/legal/media/MCHP_Research_Agreement_Extension.docx - accessed June 13, 2016).
