May 16, 2019
By

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 contributed talks — this below is the “official” advert we’ve circulated. This is a reminder that...

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…). Participation is actually open to all (and we’ll advertise more widely on relevant mailing lists) but we...

March 26, 2019
By

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 plot rendering via plotly (using the command graph=“plotly”) to each of the functions: ceplane.plot eib.plot ceac.plot evi.plot info.rank Included...

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. The summer school has been first advertise a few months back (I’ve posted on the...

Busy summer ahead

February 14, 2019
By

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, which is a shame, (although I understand, as she’s so busy). On the...

Stats in the newspapers

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 interesting piece of news in The Guardian. It is the story that data released by the Nigerian Electoral Commission...

New stuff in BCEA

December 10, 2018
By

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’ve not prioritised any of those requests… But: I did think a bit and finally found some time...

survHE new release

October 18, 2018
By

I have just submitted a revised version of survHE on CRAN — it should be up very shortly. This will be version 1.0.64 and its main feature is a major restructuring in the way the rstan/HMC stuff works. Basically, this is due to a change in the default C++ compiler. I don’t think much will change in terms of how...
