Re: st: Analysis of longitudinal data from medical records
There is no simple approach to medication issues in medical records
in observational studies. Treatment data are often left and right
censored, altered by dose adjustment and concomitant medications.
Much depends on the goals of the analysis, the assumptions you are
making, and the quality and amount of data. Standard data principles
apply and you have to take it a step at a time. Mixed models do not
alter these other concerns.

Can anyone recommend a good paper or text covering the
analysis of repeated measures data from medical
charts/electronic medical records? I am working on a
project using data from an EMR and am not sure if
there is a conventional approach to handling issues
like medication discontinuation and switching. I have
a text entitled "Applied Mixed Models in Medicine" by
H. Brown & R. Prescott that has been of some help.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
