Course Flow

This one-day course extends the two-day training into advanced modeling techniques and tools.

Module 1 shows how to make models more realistic when a combination of factors – treatment, health state, patient history – affect the probability of future events. The events then drive long-term changes in probabilities, costs and utilities.

Module 2 introduces Discrete Event Simulation (DES) models, where Markov transition probabilities are replaced by time-to-event distribution sampling. We start with DES models using fixed risks, then extend this technique with more complex time-to-event calculations.

Modules 3 & 4 introduce techniques to validate your models by reviewing patient pathways and internal model calculations.

Modules 5 & 6 introduce the advanced modeling techniques to handle population dynamics and patient interaction.

Module 7 demonstrates how to examine results for a subgroup within overall results for a heterogeneous patient population.

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.
