While the digitization of medical data within electronic health records has been introduced in some areas, massive amounts of paper-based health records are still produced on a daily basis.

This paper presents a system for the recognition and privacy preservation of personal data in paper-based health records with the aim to provide clinical studies with medical data gained from existing paper-based health records.
