A number of concepts are helpful to understand prior to using ready4.


A health economic model is a conceptual, mathematical and computational representation of systems relating to human health that can be used to help solve economic problems.


Some computational models are implemented by combining self-contained, reusable components called “modules”.

Modelling project

A ready4 modelling project develops a computational model, adds data and runs analyses.

Reproducible research

Some core concepts relating to reproducible research have multiple conflicting definitions - this is how we use them.


Some models have the potential to be used in multiple contexts - but will often need adaptation for this to be appropriate.
