My thoughts on the R-HTA workshops

October 13, 2020 | R | Gianluca Baio

Last Friday on Monday, we held our online R-HTA workshop. We will discuss the feedback and agree on ways forward in the consortium Scientific Committee soon, but I thought I’d write down some personal reactions to the very interesting discussions... [Read more...]

Books and code

August 3, 2020 | R | Gianluca Baio

This comes as the results of two external forces that have prompted me to do some work on the website — specifically the section on books. The first one is the newest version of hugo-academic (which is the engine underlying the whole of my website, together with the R package blogdown). ... [Read more...]

Refactor

July 22, 2020 | R | Gianluca Baio

This is quite exciting: since Nathan (this is his very interesting blog) has arrived to UCL a couple of months ago, we’ve started to work on quite a few of very interesting projects — including a major “refactoring” of the code for BCEA. I’m obviously very attached to BCEA — ... [Read more...]

missingHE update

May 3, 2020 | R | Gianluca Baio

Andrea has just released a major update for missingHE (this is my own fork of the main project — but now available on CRAN too), the package we (well, mostly he!) have (has) developed to handle missing data in Bayesian models for cost-effectiveness analysis. Additions to the basic structure of the ... [Read more...]

Expert opinion (again)

April 29, 2020 | R | Gianluca Baio

THis is the second video I was mentioning here — took a while to get out but it’s available now. I think you need to register here and then you can see our panel discussion. Like I said earlier, it was good fun and I think the actual sessio... [Read more...]

Job @ Oxford

May 27, 2019 | R | Gianluca Baio

Boby Mihaylova has two exciting posts available at the Health Economics Research Centre at the University of Oxford. In particular, she is looking for two R-minded researchers/analysts to develop work on disease modelling/cost-effectiveness using large... [Read more...]

Make R Great Again

May 16, 2019 | R | Gianluca Baio

Our editorial on using R in HTA (I talked about it here) has finally been published in Value in Health. This is nice in the (rather long, I know…) build up to our workshop. And speaking of, we’ve already received quite a few abstracts for... [Read more...]

Challenge accepted

May 14, 2019 | R | Gianluca Baio

As part of our R for HTA workshop, we have also prepared a kind-of-hackathon, which we are now releasing to the general public (I think “general public” is a bit pretentious, but this afternoon, I’m in the right mood for it, I think&... [Read more...]

Changes in BCEA

March 26, 2019 | R | Gianluca Baio

I’ve just updated the GitHub’s version of BCEA. Andrea has done, as usual, some very nice work – this time he’s mainly focussed on the graphical engine underlying the graphs produced by BCEA to post-process the outcome of the economic model. The main changes are the following: Added ... [Read more...]

Floor filler

February 19, 2019 | R | Gianluca Baio

As I posted recently, I’m involved in a couple of events, later this summer: our annual Summer School and the new(er) tradition of the R for HTA workshop. I have to say that I’m very happy about how things are proceeding for both of them... [Read more...]

Stats in the newspapers

February 14, 2019 | R | Gianluca Baio

As I’m waiting to catch my flight back from Stockholm (where I had a rather interesting meeting discussing Bayesian network meta-analysis. But I digress…), I am browsing the news — mainly just to keep myself awake. And I find this in... [Read more...]

Busy summer ahead

February 14, 2019 | R | Gianluca Baio

Summer is really going to be busy, this year. But in a good way… In June, I’ll be at our annual summer school in Florence. This year, we have a slight change in the line-up — Nicky has decided to take a break from teaching with us, ... [Read more...]

New stuff in BCEA

December 10, 2018 | R | Gianluca Baio

After my talks in Barcelona, I have started thinking about potential improvements or changes, mostly to do in BCEA — I got some nice comments from quite a few people, some of whom were asking for some tweaks or extra facilities. Obviously, I&rsq... [Read more...]
