Privitar, a privacy engineering software company which closed a £12m Series A round led by Partech Ventures, has won a contract with NHS Digital to boost patient privacy.

NHS Digital hopes the contract will help it deliver a new software solution for the de-identification of patient information, which will help improve the way in which data is used across the NHS and social care.

NHS Digital’s executive director of data, insights and statistics Tom Denwood said: "The health and care landscape is rapidly changing, and we can improve individual patient care if our systems can deliver a complete picture of their health and care.
