Bayesian Cost-Effectiveness Analysis

Given the results of a Bayesian model (possibly based on MCMC) in the form of simulations from the posterior distributions of suitable variables of costs and clinical benefits for two or more interventions, produces a health economic evaluation. Compares one of the interventions (the "reference") to the others ("comparators"). Produces many summary and plots to analyse the results

Installation

There are two ways of installing BCEA. A "stable" version (currently 2.2.6) is packaged and available from CRAN. So you can simply type on your R terminal

install.packages("BCEA")

The second way involves using the "development" version of BCEA - this will usually be updated more frequently and may be continuously tested. On Windows machines, you need to install a few dependencies, including Rtools first, e.g. by running

pkgs <- c("MASS","Rtools","devtools")
repos <- c("https://cran.rstudio.com", "https://inla.r-inla-download.org/R/stable") 
install.packages(pkgs,repos=repos,dependencies = "Depends")

before installing the package using devtools:

devtools::install_github("giabaio/BCEA")

Under Linux or MacOS, it is sufficient to install the package via devtools:

install.packages("devtools")
devtools:install_github("giabaio/BCEA")

More details on BCEA are available in our book Bayesian Cost-Effectiveness Analysis with the R Package BCEA (published in the UseR! Springer series). Also, details about the package, including some references and links to a pdf presentation and some posts on my own blog) are given here.
