The 'epibasix' R Package

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

This package contains elementary tools for analysis of common epidemiological problems, ranging from sample size estimation, through 2x2 contingency table analysis and basic measures of agreement (kappa, sensitivity/specificity).

Appropriate print and summary statements are also written to facilitate interpretation wherever possible.

This package is a work in progress, so any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Source code is commented throughout to facilitate modification. The target audience includes graduate students in various epi/biostatistics courses.

The 'epicalc' R Package

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes)

Functions making R easy for epidemiological calculation.

Datasets from Dbase (.dbf), Stata (.dta), SPSS(.sav), EpiInfo(.rec) and Comma separated value (.csv) formats as well as R data frames can be processed to do make several epidemiological calculations.

The 'epiR' R Package

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 1 (3 votes)

A package for analysing epidemiological data. Contains functions for directly and indirectly adjusting measures of disease frequency, quantifying measures of association on the basis of single or multiple strata of count data presented in a contingency table, and computing confidence intervals around incidence risk and incidence rate estimates. Miscellaneous functions for use in meta-analysis, diagnostic test interpretation, and sample size calculations.

The 'medAdherence' R Package

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 1 (1 vote)

Adherence is defined as "the extent to which a person’s behavior coincides with medical or health
advice", which is very important, for both clinical researchers and physicians, to identify the treatment
effect of a specific medication(s).

CASE

Rating: 
No votes yet

The main goal of the Computer Assisted Search for Epidemics (CASE) project is to develop a reliable system that generates warnings when the number of reported cases of a particular infectious disease reaches a level that indicates an unusual or unexpected rate. The system is currently in use at the Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control (SMI). It performs daily surveillance using data obtained from the database to which all notifiable diseases are reported in Sweden.

EGADSS

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 1.9 (10 votes)

EGADSS (Evidence-based Guideline and Decision Support System) is an open source tool that is designed to work in conjunction with primary care Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems to provide patient specific point of care reminders in order to aid physicians provide high quality care. EGADSS is designed as a stand alone system that would respond to requests from existing Electronic Medical Records such as Wolf, Med Access, and MedOffIS to provide patient specific clinical guidance based on its internal collection of guidelines.

The R Project for Statistical Computing

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is a GNU project which is similar to the S language and environment which was developed at Bell Laboratories (formerly AT&T, now Lucent Technologies) by John Chambers and colleagues. R can be considered as a different implementation of S. There are some important differences, but much code written for S runs unaltered under R."

The 'epitools' R Package

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 4 (1 vote)

"epitools (epidemiology tools) is an R package for epidemiologic computing and graphics."

The 'surveillance' R Package

Rating: 
No votes yet

The R-package ’surveillance’ is a framework for the development and the evaluation of outbreak detection algorithms in univariate and multivariate routine collected public health surveillance data. Hence, potential users are biostatisticians, epidemiologists and others working in applied infectious disease epidemiology. However, applications could just as well originate from environmetrics, reliability engineering, econometrics or social sciences.

GNU Octave

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (2 votes)

GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language.
