Welcome to the PROSIT Community

PROSIT is an international scientific open source development community for health economic disease models.

What is PROSIT good for?

PROSIT wants to ease the comparison of costs and utilities of different therapies by providing simple to use models. Imagine two competing therapies to heal a disease. Which one is the best choice for a limited amount of money? Our models help to answer this and other questions helping to create an affordable and strong health care system for the future ... reliable and for free!

Structure of the PROSIT Retinopathy Diabetes Disease Model, nick named as "Rhenus A"
  • Until 2010 we want to have developed disease models for all relevant late complications of diabetes mellitus (i.e. nephropathy, retinopathy, diabetic foot syndrome, stroke, myocardial infarction), while providing...
    • ...high quality according to common standards like existing modelling guidelines and pharmaco-economic reporting guidelines
    • ...transparency and credibility by open development
    • to use, to change and to participate through open source licensing
  • The future mission is to integrate also models for other chronic diseases such as asthma, COPD and more.
  • The long-term vision is to build up a lasting open source library of disease models on the internet.

  • 8. February 2008 - Danube A: Public Commentary Phase has ended The public commentary phase has ended without major problems. Only a few feedback statements were made via e-Mail with regard to lay-out issues and typos in the model. The PROSIT team wants to thank all participants in this feedback round!
