1. **SAVI** **– Sheffield Accelerated Value of Information**

*This web tool is an R Shiny Server application which can be used to calculate Expected Value of (Partial) Perfect Information for any cost-effectiveness model. To use this tool, only a probabilistic sensitivity analysis sample is required.*

2. **RANE – Rapid Assessment of Need for Evidence**

*This is a web based Shiny app which can be used to calculate the value of further research without a full economic model. It requires only an expression of uncertainty in a primary outcome (e.g. odds ratio) and a small number of other inputs such as baseline risk, incident population, duration of research etc.*

3. **BCEAweb**

*This provides a web interface to the R package BCEA, designed to post-process the results of a statistical model and standardise health economic evaluations, as described in the following graph.*

4. **EVSI** **visualisation tools**

*This tool provides web applications for the visualisation of the EVSI*

**1. EVSI Example**: The repository has four folders with R scripts that contain general functions for estimating EVSI using different methods.

**2. EVSI-in-practice**: A companion repository for the code to compare four recent EVSI calculation methods on three case studies that have been developed to reflect real-world characteristics of EVSI estimation.
