Expanding the {phsmethods} R Package

Published on October 4, 2019

The {phsmethods} package has been developed to assist analysts in Public Health Scotland (PHS) with common analytical tasks. The benefits of this package are reducing duplication of effort where the same functions need to be written across multiple analyses and projects, reducing the likelihood of error, and a general streamlining of code and outputs in the organisation. This Solution will:

  • deepen the current function’s approaches and incorporate data requirements from other nation’s NHS systems
  • scope of the functions within the package could be widened
  • submit the package to CRAN
