## Table of Simulation Statistics for the Health Economic Model

### Description

Using the input in the form of MCMC simulations and after having run the health economic model, produces a summary table of the simulations from the cost-effectiveness analysis.

### Usage

```
sim_table(he, ...)
## S3 method for class 'bcea'
sim_table(he, wtp = 25000, ...)
```

### Arguments

`he` |
A |

`...` |
Additional arguments |

`wtp` |
The value of the willingness to pay threshold to be used in the summary table. |

### Value

Produces the following elements:

`table` |
A table with simulation statistics from the economic model |

`names.cols` |
A vector of labels to be associated with each column of the table |

`wtp` |
The selected value of the willingness to pay |

`idx_wtp` |
The index associated with the selected value of the willingness to pay threshold in the grid used to run the analysis |
