Test files

The test files have been posted on the "Datasets and Documentation" page. As suggested earlier, the following cleaning has been done to (I hope) remove any leakers:

Hospital: All pneumonia ICD codes have been removed.
Medications: All records containing an ICD code for pneumonia have been removed. Also, the CCC codes (an alternative coding for diagnosis) have been removed from all records.
Conditions: All records containing an ICD code for pneumonia have been removed.
Demographics: No cleaning.

...but, I hope, no ICD codes that indicate a pneumonia diagnosis.
