Hello Everyone,

I’m excited to kick off a new content series dedicated to reviewing and exploring the R packages I’ve developed. Over the coming weeks, I’ll be diving into the details, features, and practical applications of each package, providing you with a comprehensive understanding of how they can enhance your data analysis and machine learning projects.

What to Expect

Each Monday, I’ll introduce a new package from my suite of R tools. You’ll get an overview of the package’s purpose, its key functions, and the problems it aims to solve. Throughout the week, I’ll provide detailed insights and examples to help you get the most out of these tools.

Why This Series?

The goal of this series is to share the knowledge and utility of the packages I’ve created, helping you streamline your data workflows, improve your analytical capabilities, and leverage advanced techniques with ease. Whether you’re a seasoned data scientist or just getting started, there’s something here for everyone.

Overview of the Packages

  • healthyR: Designed to simplify health analytics, this package offers a range of functions for common tasks in healthcare data analysis.
  • A companion to healthyR, this package provides datasets specifically tailored for health analytics.
  • healthyR.ts: Focused on time series analysis in healthcare, healthyR.ts offers tools for modeling, forecasting, and visualizing time-dependent data.
  • Bringing AI to health analytics, this package integrates machine learning algorithms for predictive analytics and decision support.
  • TidyDensity: A tool for density estimation and probabilistic modeling, TidyDensity makes it easy to work with distributions and perform simulations.
  • tidyAML: An approachable package for automated machine learning, tidyAML simplifies the process of building and evaluating machine learning models.

First Up: healthyR

This Thursday, we’ll start with an in-depth look at healthyR. I’ll share its core functionalities, how it can be used for health analytics, and practical examples to get you started. Each Thursday, I’ll provide practical examples to help you apply the package being discussed that week.

Get Ready

To make the most of this series, I encourage you to install the healthyverse suite of packages. This will ensure you have all the tools at your fingertips as we explore their capabilities together.


Stay tuned for more updates, and let’s embark on this journey of enhancing our R skills together!

Best, Steve
