beanz: Bayesian Analysis of Heterogeneous Treatment Effect

It is vital to assess the heterogeneity of treatment effects (HTE) when making health care decisions for an individual patient or a group of patients. Nevertheless, it remains challenging to evaluate HTE based on information collected from clinical studies that are often designed and conducted to evaluate the efficacy of a treatment for the overall population. The Bayesian framework offers a principled and flexible approach to estimate and compare treatment effects across subgroups of patients defined by their characteristics. This package allows users to explore a wide range of Bayesian HTE analysis models, and produce posterior inferences about HTE.
