Boston, MA (2014)

2014/01/01 - 2014/01/31 | Boston, MA

This advanced course will use a case study workshop approach – starting with text-based information and resulting in a complex model using several advanced techniques.

This course will be offered in Boston, MA.

We expect the course to be presented on Jan 17, but the dates are not finalized.

The course will run from 8:30 AM to about 5:00 PM.

The two-day Healthcare Modeling Course is a comprehensive introduction to health economic modeling using TreeAge Pro. We introduce the required elements of theory, then provide hands-on instruction for creating and analyzing models. Day 1 focuses on basic decision trees, cost-effectiveness analysis, and deterministic & probabilistic sensitivity analysis. Day 2 introduces Markov models, then those models are analyzed using all the techniques used in Day 1. The course finishes with individual patient simulation models, allowing for both heterogeneity and event tracking in Markov models.

No advanced knowledge of TreeAge Pro is required. Even experienced TreeAge Pro modelers can learn about additional software features and modeling techniques.

Many attendees choose to attend the Advanced Markov/DES Course which is usually presented the following day. The Advanced Markov/DES Course course focuses on the application of advanced techniques to various modelling challenges.
