Description

This function can generate events for clinical, referral and therapy tables. These are based on the consultation tables generated by simulate_ehr_consultations.

Usage

1
2
simulate_ehr_events(ehr_def, consultation, event_type = c("clinical",
  "referral", "therapy"), cores = 1, therapy_lookup = NULL)

Arguments

ehr_def

an object of class link{EHR_definition}

consultation

a dataframe of simulated patient consultations

event_type

Type of events to be generated

cores

number of processor cores to use in generating the data

therapy_lookup

lookup table for drug therapy events e.g. link{product}

Details

This function is relatively basic - for clinical and referral tables, it generates events according to the comorbidities defined in the ehr_def, with the mean number of events for each consultation being defined in the ehr_def for that event_type. For therapy events, the function simply samples the therapy_lookup table, with the mean number of events for each consultation being defined in the ehr_def for therapy. Therefore, at the moment, the therapies bear no relationship to the conditions the patient has and are only for the purposes of explaining the functioning of the package. The random sampling is based on a poisson distribution

Value

dataframe
