Abstract

Health status indicators constitute an important tool in the context of evaluating public health interventions, understanding health trends and determining priority regions for resource allocation. In order to increase the feasibility of handling and analysing health indicators data, an R package was developed. The rtabnetsp package performs requests to TabNet servers from São Paulo State Department of Health, retrieving and preprocessing such data for user manipulation. This article introduces the packet and its functions, installation and use, and also exemplifies its functionalities, which involve listing and searching among available indicators, selecting desired content and obtaining aggregated data by regionalization level in a data frame form, granting agility in tasks regarding public health management in the state of São Paulo.
