How to use encrypted field as report filter criteria


We are planning to some patient information in salesforce in an encrypted format.  I would like to know whether it is possible to use the encrypted field as report filter criteria?

If this requirement is not possible using the standard salesforce functionality, is there any workaround to achieve it?

As per existing functionality, encrypted fields cannnot be used in filters. Here's the documentation: https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=limits_fields.htm&language=en_US
