EpiSignalDetection and EpiReport packages now available on the CRAN

19 November 2018

Two new R packages were developed on behalf of the ECDC by Epiconcept epidemiologist Lore Merdrignac.

EpiSignalDetection includes a Shiny application aiming at exploring time series to detect possible outbreaks using infectious disease surveillance data at EU/EEA or country level.

EpiReport allows to draft a disease-specific epidemiological report similar to the Annual Epidemiological Reports published by the ECDC. Automated disease reports are produced in “Microsoft Word” format.
