Arcana Institute develops universal, user-friendly models which can be used in pharmacoeconomics. Examples of diseases for which universal models are prepared are diabetes and osteoporosis.
The purpose of modeling is to structure evidence on clinical and economic outcomes in a form that can generate valuable information to support health policy decision-makers allocate scarce health care resources efficiently.
Models are created for a life time horizon with a possibility of its modification. The length of cycles in the model is determined based on the specific disease - a monthly, semi-annual or annual. Calculations are performed using various techniques: classical Markov model, individual simulation (microsimulation), probabilistic sensitivity analysis (PSA).
Models synthesize relevant data from a variety of sources, including clinical trials, observational studies, case registries, public health statistics, and preference surveys. Costs and resource use data from different countries could be implemented as well.
To prepare models TreeAge Pro and MS Office Excel software is used.
