Latest Version: PROSIT Six-State Generic Markov Model 2021A - Release Candidate

Summary: The first PROSIT generic Markov model is currently under development. Generic here means that the model is not pre-defined for a certain disease or purpose, but includes full functionality of a health-economic disease model. It relies on the common PROSIT methodology as all diabetes models.

Methodology: Markov model (Markov process)

Health Economic Perspective: flexible, dependent on user specification

Time Horizon: 80 cycles; currently defined as annual time steps

Patient Cohort: flexible, default input based on Briggs & Sculpher, Pharmacoeconomics 1998

Costs: No cost data set included, but costs can be edited freely.

Other specifications: the model supports QALYS, and discounting of both costs and effects. The half-cycle correction is implemented as classical half-steps at the first and the last cycle.

Team Members: Julia Häußler-Sigler, Monika Pobiruchin, Wendelin Schramm
