New NMA Web Tool; MetaInsight
MetaInsight is a new tool that is freely available and that conducts network meta-analysis (NMA) via the web requiring no specialist software for the user to install but leveraging established analysis routines (primarily the netmeta and gemtc package in R). The tool is interactive and uses an intuitive ‘point and click’ interface and presents results in visually intuitive and appealing ways. It can also carry out sensitivity analysis on existing NMAs. It is hoped that this tool will assist those in conducting NMA who are not statistical experts, and, in turn, increase the relevance of published meta-analyses, and in the long term contribute to improved healthcare decision making as a result.
