The package implements functionality to simulate point-prevalence studies (PPSs) for healtcare-associated infections (HAIs) and estimate incidence based on the PPS data. It is a companion package to the preprint Willrich et al., From prevalence to incidence - a new approach in the hospital setting; doi:10.1101/554725 , where methods are explained in detail.

For an introduction to the use of the package have a look at the accompanying vignette ‘prevtoinc_vignette’.
