I think your best bet is a nonlinear mixed model, either glimmix or
nlmixed, due to the multiple ED visits for some patients.

Subject: model building in Logistic regression
I am trying to investigate the relationship between the drug compliance
and ED visit.
what I have now:
1. demographic informaiton on patients level (recip_id, age, sex ,race,
and drug compliance) 2. claims records for ED visit (recip_id, er_visit
(0/1) note: some patients have multiple ED visit;
Can I aggregated the claims record by patients and then fit a negative
If I do not aggregate claims records, how can I fit a logistic model?
thank you the help,
