We want to be fully transparent regarding the underlying calculations for the standard model types that Evidencio supports. This page lists our standard model types and the associated calculations
Linear regression models are used to predict continuous outcomes. The prediction is estimated by:
predicted result `P = \beta_0 + X\beta`
Logistic regression models are used to predict probabilities. The prediction is estimated by:
predicted probability `P = e^(X\beta)/(1+e^(X\beta))`
Cox proportional-hazards models are used to predict the probability `S(t)` that the patient will be free from an event (e.g. biochemical recurrence) at some time point (e.g. 5 years after surgery). For survival analysis the prediction is estimated by: `S(t) = S_0(t)^exp(X\beta)`
Users can define Custom prediction models based on custom mathematical formulas expressed in terms of model
variables. Evidencio supports both single and conditional custom formulas. The custom formula(s) used by an
Evidencio model can always be viewed in the details section of the respective model, so that model users can exactly
identify the underlying model logic.
Example of conditional formulas:
Evidencio supports the use of R-Script code to define the calculation logic for prediction models and calculators. R-Script models may contain complex and nested functions as long as they produce a single value outcome.
Evidencio lets you define variable/parameter transformations for each continuous model variable, for instance to accommodate non linear behaviour. We support both simple transformations as well as conditional (range based) transformations (e.g. cubic splines) to tackle a broad spectrum of non-linear behaviour.
You can attribute confidence interval data to your models on Evidencio. Your confidence interval data can be specified in terms of a bootstrap data-set or as covariance matrix. You can simply copy paste your bootstrap or matrix data from e.g. excel or another data-sheet.
|`\beta_0`||Intercept term, denoted by "Intercept"|
|`\beta_(varN)`||Coefficient estimate, associated with a covariate/variable|
|`\gamma`||Scaling parameter in survival regression models, denoted by "Scaling Parameter"|
|`X\beta`||Model linear predictor, estimated by summation of the intercept term and all `\beta` values multiplied by that variable. E.g.: `\beta_0 + \beta_(var1) * var1 + \beta_(var2) * var2 + \beta_(varN) * varN`|
|`S_0(t)`||The baseline survival function, the survival proportion when all covariates are equal to zero (`X\beta = 0`).|
