To do any inference regarding healthcare policy, researchers need secure and protected health data which is restricted by privacy laws and interoperability issues. Synthetic health data provides a way to generate and investigate data without concerns of violating legal restrictions (HIPAA). In this research, we built health insurance and loss-of-care modules into a synthetic health data simulator (Synthea) to simulate and analyze the impact of health insurance on breast cancer survival rates. We successfully reflected real world insurance and loss-of-care impact statistics in Synthea.
