Modeling Approaches for HTA: A Practical Hands-on Workshop

3-Day Certified University Course


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.

Day 1

  • Modeling overview and taxonomy
  • Decision trees, state-transition models (Markov models) and partitioned survival models
  • Handling uncertainty and variability

Day 2

  • Microsimulation models
  • Discrete event simulation models
  • Handling individual behavior and waiting lines

Day 3

  • 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)

For this course, basic knowledge of spreadsheet programs (e. g., MS Excel) is recommended. Experience in other software tools used in the workshop (e. g., TreeAge, Arena, Berkeley Madonna) is not required. The course language is English.
