Webinar: Cost-effectiveness of R vs. Excel in Health Technology Assessments

December 6, 2021

On Wednesday, December 15th at 12:OOPM EST, Jeroen Jansen, Petros Pechlivanoglou, and Howard Thom will present a webinar examining the cost-effectiveness of using the programing language R instead of Excel for health technology assessment (HTA) analysis. While Excel has long been the standard, it lacks the power to do more advanced analyses that are becoming more frequent over time.

According to the announcement by PrecisionHEOR, “modern programming languages such as R, facilitate the development of models that are (i) clinically realistic, (ii) capable of quantifying decision uncertainty, (iii) transparent and reproducible, and (iv) reusable and adaptable. In principle, an HTA environment that encourages use of modern software can therefore help ensure that coverage and pricing decisions confer greatest possible benefit and capture all scientific uncertainty.”
