Summary methods for objects in the class mixedAn (mixed analysis)

Description

Prints a summary table for the results of the mixed analysis for the economic evaluation of a given model

Usage

## S3 method for class 'mixedAn'
summary(object, wtp = 25000,...)

Arguments

object

An object of the class mixedAn, which is the results of the function mixedAn, generating the economic evaluation of a set of interventions, considering given market shares for each option.

wtp

The value of the willingness to pay choosen to present the analysis.

...

Additional arguments affecting the summary produced.

Value

Produces a table with summary information on the loss in expected value of information generated by the inclusion of non cost-effective interventions in the market.
