The power of R for the NHS Why is a statistical programming language having an impact on the NHS?
R is one of the most popular open source statistical programming languages, but is not yet widely used in the NHS.
It has the power to visualise data in new ways, helping analysts understand problems better and offering new insights to improve the quality of care. R can be used for a range of topics in health, such as reporting hospital mortality statistics and evaluating interventions.
