Access Models Through Microsoft Excel
Many of the models hosted in the repository come with a Macro-enabled Microsoft Excel file that simplify model access. The Excel spreadsheet will include a list of model inputs, which can be changed by the user, and automatically populate numerical and graphical results. All you need to do is the download the spreadsheet, change input parameters to those of your choice, and click "Run". To find the Excel sheet for the model of your choice, head to the model repository and click on the name of the model you are interested in.
Access Models Through R
The client R package "peermodels" can be used to easily access the models hosted on the PRISM platform. You can use the package to retrieve default input parameters for a model, change the parameters as needed, and run the model remotely with the new parameters. To access your model of choice in R, go to the model repository and click on the name of the model you are interested in. You will need an API key to access the model of your
choice. Read below to find out how to apply for an API key.
Get Your API Key
Our current funding from provincial and federal agencies enable us to provide free access to the models hosted on the cloud. If you need an API key to access a model of your choice on PRISM, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, affiliation, use case, and the name of the model you would like to access.
Share Your Models
The current version of PRISM is able to host decision-analytic and clinical prediction models developed in R or C++. If you have a model that you'd like to share with others, email email@example.com to learn how.
