Baltimore, MD - Advanced Markov/DES (2018)

2018/05/18 - 2018/05/18 | Baltimore, MD

This course will be offered in Baltimore, MD on May 18, 2018, which is the week prior to the ISPOR Conference.

The course will be presented at the following location.

Holiday Inn Baltimore-Inner Harbor (Dwtn)
301 W Lombard Street
Baltimore, MD 21201

The course will run from 8:30 AM to about 5:15 PM.

This one-day training course provides hands-on instruction with advanced modeling and analysis techniques.

The course starts with a Markov patient simulation model with complex formulas using the treatment strategy, health state and prior events to determine values in the model. In Module 2, we build a Discrete Event Simulation (DES) model, adding non-fixed risk and background mortality. Module 3 covers Markov models with a dynamic cohort size to reflect both prevalence and incidence. Module 4 explores a parallel trials model which includes interaction among patients competing for a limited resource. Module 5 covers three topics – time reporting to generate a history of every step in each patient’s individual pathway; debugging techniques for reviewing internal model calculations; and subgroup analysis splitting a heterogeneous cohort into subgroups based on patient characteristics.

Course Agenda

Note that experience with TreeAge Pro is required as a prerequisite for the course. You should be comfortable with all topics covered in the Two-Day Healthcare Modeling course.
