Training Schedule

This two-day course is a comprehensive introduction to health economic modeling using TreeAge Pro. We introduce the required elements of theory, then provide hands-on instruction.

We start by building and analyzing three common model types – Decision Trees, Markov Models and Partitioned Survival Models. Then we examine uncertainty related to these models via Deterministic and Probabilistic Sensitivity Analysis. We finish with Patient Simulation Models, which add the impact of patient characteristics and history.

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 focuses on the application of advanced techniques to various modeling challenges.

After successful completion of this 2-day healthcare course, attendees earn 15.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

This one-day course extends the HC course training into advanced modeling techniques and tools. The course includes the following topics.

  1. Extend patient simulation with complex calculations based on the treatment, health state and prior events.
  2. Build Discrete Event Simulation (DES) models, where Markov transition probabilities are replaced by time-to-event distribution sampling.
  3. Examine patient and cohort pathways for a simulation model.
  4. Review internal model calculations via debugging techniques.
  5. Study population dynamics by defining initial population size and increasing it with time.
  6. Run patient simulation models where individuals compete for a limited resource.
  7. Set patient characteristics using real patient data.
  8. Examine results for subgroups within a heterogeneous cohort.

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 (see section above).

In just one hour, you can gain proficiency in building and analyzing TreeAge Pro models to assess litigation risk.

This tutorial covers the basic steps for creating a Legal TreeAge Pro model using a simple case study. The legal issues are organized in a model structure. Then the model is analyzed to choose the best option and assess risk.

If you have a small, medium or large group that would  benefit from on-site TreeAge Pro training, an experienced trainer will come to your facility to train your staff.

We can deliver the following materials on-site.

  • Healthcare Modeling Course (2 days)
  • Healthcare Modeling Course Condensed (1 day)
  • Advanced Modeling Course (1 day)
  • Custom materials specific to your needs.

We provide online training via GoToMeeting, which allows for screen sharing and audio to support the session. Any of our training options can be presented online.

Online training is scheduled in 1-2 hour sessions based on customer and trainer availability.

Work directly on your model with a TreeAge Pro expert. This can jump-start your project saving you hours of time.

Typical engagements are 1-3 hours total.

“I’d been teaching myself TreeAge for about 6 months before attending the HC and advanced courses. The manuals and support service are great, but if you want to learn fast and develop a high level of confidence in your modeling then I strongly recommend the training.”
