Software, websites & apps

The following are software packages, apps and websites dedicated specifically to prognosis research.

Many generic (e.g. regression model or machine learning) packages can also be used to undertake prognosis research

The list is in development, and certainly not exhaustive.

Please get in touch to provide more recommendations to add. 

  • PM suite of modules produced by Dr Joie Ensor:

    • pmsampsize: R and Stata packages for sample size calculations for prediction model development studies

    • pmcalplot: Stata package for producing calibration plots 

  • stcoxcal: a Stata package for examining the calibration performance of a survival model at particular time-point(s)

  • metamiscan R package for conducting meta-analysis of prognosis studies by Dr Thomas Debray

  • bsvalidation: a Stata package for bootstrap internal validation command for predictive logistic regression models

  • Visit decisioncurveanalysis.org for software, data sets, tutorials etc. on net benefit & decision curves

  • Various researchers have GitHub pages offering code for prognosis and prediction research, including:
