EHR: Electronic Health Record (EHR) Data Processing and Analysis Tool

Process and analyze Electronic Health Record (EHR) data. The 'EHR' package provides modules to perform diverse medication-related studies using data from EHR databases. Especially, the package includes modules to perform pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) analyses using EHRs, as outlined in Choi, Beck, McNeer, Weeks, Williams, James, Niu, Abou-Khalil, Birdwell, Roden, Stein, Bejan, Denny, and Van Driest (2020) <doi:10.1002/cpt.1787>. Additional modules will be added in future. In addition, this package provides various functions useful to perform Phenome Wide Association Study (PheWAS) to explore associations between drug exposure and phenotypes obtained from EHR data, as outlined in Choi, Carroll, Beck, Mosley, Roden, Denny, and Van Driest (2018) <doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/bty306>.
