jomuller/ITCARES: an Interactive Tool for Case-crossover Analyses of electronic medical REcords for patient Safety

The ITCARES package provides an interactive tool for use by clinical epidemiologists to systematically design case-crossover analysis of large EMR database. This tool embedded in a Shiny app can be accessed with its main function runShinyITCARES. The Shiny app is based on a set of 3 main functions: (1) first_case() selects the earliest record containing one or more of the diagnostic codes, (2) age_study_period_restrictions() applies the age and study period restrictions, (3) case_crossover() performs the case-crossover analysis. Advanced users and developers may conduct and customize a step-by-step case-crossover analysis directly from the R console by calling the latter functions.
