State HIV offices routinely produce fact sheets, epidemiologic profiles, and other reports from the eHARS (Enhanced HIV/AIDS Reporting System) database. The eHARS software is used throughout the United States and has limited variability between states. Due to this limited variability, software developed to analyze and visualize data using the eHARS database schema may be useful to many state HIV offices. The R software environment was used to create a powerful data dashboard for the eHARS database schema. The eharsDash package contains software which imports data from eHARS into the R environment and analyzes and visualizes the data.
