BCEA produces a health economic evaluation given a random sample of suitable variables of costs and clinical benefits for two or more interventions, e.g. using results of a Bayesian model (possibly based on MCMC) in the form of simulations from the posterior distributions. Compares one of the interventions (the "reference") to the others ("comparators"). Produces many summaries and plots to analyse the results.
