Comparing predictive models for obstetrical unit occupancy using caret - Part 1

Simulation metamodeling involves building predictive models based on outputs of designed simulation experiments. In this series of posts we'll share our experience with using the R package caret for building and comparing several predictive modeling based metamodels including linear models, neural networks, random forests, k-nearest neighbor, and cubic splines.

Using R instead of Excel for analyzing recovery room data

Date Tags R / Excel

In my spreadsheet modeling class this semester, I gave an assignment that involved doing some basic pivot tables and histograms for a dataset containing (fake) patient records from a post-anethesia care unit (PACU). It's the place you go after having surgery until you recover sufficiently to either go home (for …
