Public Healthcare Modeling Course

Public training courses on TreeAge Pro Healthcare are offered several times a year in the US and Europe, and in the Asia-Pacific region.

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.

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.

Course Agenda (PDF)

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 modeling challenges.

Public Advanced Modeling Course

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.

Online Legal Modeling Course

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

The agenda for this one-hour online course is presented below.

  • Why use TreeAge Pro for legal analysis?
  • Recommended steps for creating a Legal TreeAge Pro model
  • Case study – liability/damages lawsuit
  • Organizing the legal issues
  • Building the model to represent the case
  • Analyzing the model to help clients choose a legal strategy

Private Training

If you have a small, medium or large group that would  benefit from onsite TreeAge Pro training, we can come to you. An experienced trainer will come to your facility to train your staff.

We can deliver the same agenda as the 2-day course, the advanced course, or, we can create custom materials specific to a current project.

Online Training

We provide online training via our GoToMeeting subscription, which allows for screen sharing and audio to support the session. The cost varies based on the subject matter and the number of attendees. Online training is scheduled in 1-2 hour sessions based on customer and trainer availability.   Payment for online training is non-refundable, however we will make every effort to accommodate changes to a scheduled meeting.   Unused funds can be applied to TreeAge Licensing.

Licenses that include Training

TreeAge Software offers licenses that include formal live training.   These software licenses are only available to clients that can attend particular predetermined training offers (Public Trainings).    Please email us for pricing and details.
