Decision models can synthesize evidence from different sources to provide estimates of long-term consequences of a decision with uncertainty. Cohort state-transition models (cSTM) are decision models commonly used in medical decision making because they can simulate hypothetical cohorts' transitions across various health states over time. This tutorial shows how to conceptualize cSTMs in a programming language environment and shows examples of their implementation in R. We illustrate their use… Expand

Continuous-Time Semi-Markov Models in Health Economic Decision Making
TLDR
The proposed semi-Markov model provided a sensible balance between model parsimoniousness and computational complexity for the disease process considered in this case study and translated into almost a doubling in mean total cost and a 60-d decrease in mean survival time when using the Markov model instead of the semi-markov model.

A Multidimensional Array Representation of State-Transition Model Dynamics
TLDR
This manuscript proposes modifying the transitional cSTMs cohort trace computation to compute and store c STMs dynamics that capture both state occupancy and transition dynamics, which produces a multidimensional matrix from which both the state occupancyand transition dynamics can be recovered.

TLDR
A new methodological framework for health economic modeling that is based on, and extends, the concept of moment-generating functions (MGFs) for time-to-event random variables and can be applied to health economic evaluations in the place of Markov modeling or DES and has certain advantages over both.
