Markov to Excel Conversion

With TreeAge Pro 2017, R1, we introduced the capability to convert a TreeAge Pro Markov cohort model to a working stand-alone Excel model with a single mouse click. The Excel model contains editable model inputs for Markov cohort analysis with full transparency. Results from each strategy are then summarized to compare treatment strategies.

We created this new capability to provide modelers with the option to create a Markov cohort model quickly and efficiently in TreeAge Pro, and then convert it for distribution to people/organizations who prefer to receive the model in Excel.

This capability will ultimately be sold as a separate component which extends the functionality of the basic TreeAge Pro Healthcare product. However from January to June the alpha version of this component will be made available free of charge on request to license holders running TreeAge Pro Healthcare 2017 who meet the criteria below:

  • Corporate, Non-Profit, Government or Full Academic license (no student licenses).
  • Active Annual License or Standard License with Active Maintenance.
  • Access will expire on the earlier of June 30, 2017 or your License or Maintenance expiration date.

Here are some links to help you get started with this new capability.

  • Click here to register for access.
  • Click here for instructions on how to update your software and license for access after your registration has been approved.

Our goal is to provide a mechanism to export a standard Markov Cohort model from TreeAge Pro to Excel, not to recreate every advanced feature within our software. Therefore, there will be advanced features and analyses available in TreeAge Pro that cannot be converted to the Excel model.
