A general problem in biosurveillance is finding the optimal aggregates of more basic data to monitor for the detection of disease outbreaks. We developed a multivariate procedure for identifying the set of over-the-counter (OTC) healthcare products that correlates best with a set of diagnoses. To ensure that the procedure produces results that agree with clinical knowledge of diseases and (OTC) products, we applied it to a set of products and set of diagnoses for which the correlation was known… CONTINUE READING
