I wish to analyse my dataset using a network analysis but my data doesn't fit the standard format that I have seen in examples especially the igraph package e.g. https://kateto.net/netscix2016.html
My data consists of prescription drug claims and the format is Prescriber -> Patient -> Pharmacy
Below is a sample of the data I have:
sample <- data.frame(prescriber = c("DocA","DocA","DocA","DocB","DocC"), patient = c(123,123,345,567,890), pharmacy = c("ABC","ABC","XYZ","XYZ","XYZ"))
I've tried googling how to analyse this type of data but I don't know even how to describe it, I've tried multi tier directed network, multigraphs, muti level graphs but I can't find any examples.
I tried looking for similar uses cases such as flight data where I have an origin, a stopover and a final destination but I've had no joy.
Is it possible to analyse such data with mutiple levels i.e. prescriber to patient to pharmacy using R?
Thanks in advance
