Ewen is very proud of finalfit and acts like he’s programmed the Apollo 11 guidance computer. It’s actually pretty good for healthcare data analysis and forms the core of our current analysis workflow.
It is well-documented, supports all our basic modelling (Ed. – except Poisson regression Ewen) and contains a number of super handy functions which are covered in the blog. Best of all, it allows us to export publication-ready results tables directly from RStudio, something which has greatly speeded up our workflow, and allows us to include more data in publications.
