A new semiparametric model of the ROC curve based on the resilience family or proportional reversed hazard family is proposed which is an alternative to the existing models. The resulting ROC curve and its summary indices (such as area under the curve (AUC) and Youden index) have simple analytic forms. The partial likelihood method is applied to estimate the ROC curve. Moreover, the estimation methodologies of the resilience family of the ROC curve have been developed based on AUC estimators

Real data from the American National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) has been analysed in detail based on the proposed model and the usual binormal model prevalent in the literature. Real data in the context of brain injury-related biomarkers is also analysed in order to compare our model with the Lehmann family of the ROC curves. Finally, we show that the proposed model may be applicable in the misspecification scenario through a Ducheme muscular dystrophy data.
