The goal of viscomp is to provide several visualization tools for exploring the behavior of the components in a network meta-analysis of multi-component (complex) interventions:

  • components descriptive analysis
  • heat plot of the two-by-two component combinations
  • leaving one component combination out scatter plot
  • violin plot for specific component combinations’ effects
  • density plot for components’ effects
  • waterfall plot for the interventions’ effects that differ by a certain component combination
  • network graph of components
  • rank heat plot of components for multiple outcomes.


You can install the development version of viscomp like so:
