Detecting PHI and PII

The PHI and PII detection is only available through Philter’s REST API via the /api/detect endpoint. See Philter’s API documentation for usage and examples.

Philter includes the ability to simply detect if input text contains PHI or PII. This detection does not modify the input text and simply returns a list of the types of detected PII/PHI. This functionality is useful for situations in which you just want to find out if text may contain PHI or PII without modifying the text. This could be required for audit, security, or other purposes.

The text submitted to Philter for detection is only analyzed on its own. No other documents or content affect the result returned to the client.
