Simulation results for proposed method vs. traditional methods: 100 patients per trial. For 1,000 simulated trials, (a) mean(mean time) and median(mean time) and (b) mean(error in mean time) and median(error in mean time) for trials with 100 patients for the proposed method and for other established methods. The population mean time is 10, as indicated by the horizontal lines. Bars occasionally extend above 30.
