Houston - Healthcare Modeling (2015)

2015/02/03 - 2015/02/04 | Houston, TX

This course will be offered in Houston, TX on February 3-4, 2015 at the following location.

MD Anderson Cancer Center
Mid Campus Building 1
7007 Bertner Avenue
Houston, TX  77030

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

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.
