High Cost Users of the NHS – code available


In the interests of transparency and the sharing of work, the code for my recent project with The Health Foundation is now available on GitHub: https://github.com/HFAnalyticsLab/High_cost_users

Most of the project was undetaken in SAS, using the CPRD dataset and linked HES data. The final outputs were constructed in R.

A new project I am involved in with colleagues at The Health Foundation will involve translating all code into R (we will be re-using a lot that is published above). We will likely make extensive use of the data.table package in order to deal with the large datasets involved.

I will add a link to the new R code once we have completed the project and uploaded everything to GitHub.
