EvidenceSynthesis is part of HADES.
This R package contains routines for combining causal effect estimates and study diagnostics across multiple data sites in a distributed study. This includes functions for performing meta-analysis and forest plots.
# Simulate some data for this example:
populations <- simulatePopulations()
# Fit a Cox regression at each data site, and approximate likelihood function:
fitModelInDatabase <- function(population) {
cyclopsData <- Cyclops::createCyclopsData(Surv(time, y) ~ x + strata(stratumId),
data = population,
modelType = "cox")
cyclopsFit <- Cyclops::fitCyclopsModel(cyclopsData)
approximation <- approximateLikelihood(cyclopsFit, parameter = "x", approximation = "custom")
return(approximation)
}
approximations <- lapply(populations, fitModelInDatabase)
approximations <- do.call("rbind", approximations)
# At study coordinating center, perform meta-analysis using per-site approximations:
estimate <- computeBayesianMetaAnalysis(approximations)
