Whitepaper: Per-Capita Costs of Diabetes mellitus in Germany 2015 -Adapted for the PROSIT Disease Models

Abstract

Health economic modeling is an essential part in today’s health economic evaluations. Since 2007, the PROSIT disease modelling community develops open source Markov models for late complications of Diabetes mellitus. This whitepaper exemplifies how cost data from a published German analysis on the per-capita costs of Diabetes mellitus (“CoDiM”) can be utilized to populate the PROSIT models. There are some limitations regarding specific cost categories, e.g., blood pressure monitoring or screening for retinopathy, which were not explicitly reported in the CoDiM-study. However, the outlined approach allows performing a literature-based cohort simulation which can be adapted and expanded with additional cost information based on further data sources.
