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...

Nathan Green has alerted/invited me to another workshop aimed at increasing the use of R in Health Economics. He and I had some discussion in the past few months and especially around the time we were running our workshop back in July. The “scoping” workshop at Imperial has also a very interesting set up — all the details are here....
