Modeling Approaches for HTA: A Practical Hands-on Workshop

3-Day Certified University Course, New Feature: COVID-19 Modeling - International Expert Session


Decision trees - Markov models - Microsimulation models - Discrete event simulation models - Infectious disease models 

There are a number of other modeling courses focusing on either theory or only selected modeling approaches. In contrast, our course combines theoretical concepts with practical hands-on exercises comprising five different modeling techniques applied in Public Health and HTA. We will use four different software packages depending on the modeling area. Real world case examples from different acute and chronic diseases will be discussed.
The course is aimed at members of:
  • Healthcare & health policy organizations, national HTA Agencies
  • Pharmaceutical & medical device industry
  • Academia and research institutions
  • Health insurances/sickness funds
  • Consultancy organizations

Course Pre-requisites:
Course language is English. Both native and non-native English speaker scientists are welcome.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Modeling overview and taxonomy
  • Decision trees, state-transition models (Markov models) and partitioned survival models
  • Handling uncertainty and variability
  • Microsimulation models
  • Discrete event simulation models
  • Handling individual behavior and waiting lines
  • Infectious disease models
  • Handling dynamic transmissions and herd immunity
  • COVID-19 Modeling - international expert session (covering dynamic transmission modeling approaches e.g. agent-based models)
  • Optional: Course Examination
