PROSIT Generic Markov Models
Our first Release Candidate of a six-state generic Markov model has been released. Comments and suggestions are welcomed.
Latest Release: 08.03.2021
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.
