IPECAD workshop 2020
Draft work plan
Comparison of Cost-Effectiveness/Disease Progression (Health Economic) Models in Alzheimer’s Disease – NETWORK Meeting, 2020
Draft work plan 2020-01-28
Trust and confidence are critical to the successful use of decision-analytic health care models. The aim of this meeting is to improve the transparency and trust aligned to use of health economic models in the context of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). This will be achieved through ongoing development of methods, improved reporting standards, and related good practice within the field of decision-analytic modelling in the area of AD. The key objective of this upcoming meeting is to receive submissions on AD modelling aligned to the challenge/scenarios set out, and to systematically examine cross-model differences in predicted outcomes, with structured discussion in relation to model design choices and parameterization. The meeting is based on a reference case benchmark scenario (and requested output matrix) – developed through prior discussion – that can be run in multiple health economic models of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), and which will allow comparison of model predictions and facilitate identification of possible factors explaining the range of and heterogeneity across modelling and simulation outcomes.
• DONE: 2020-01: finalize cross-comparison plan
• 2020-02/06: apply model
• 2020-07: share benchmark tables
• 2020-09: present at IPECAD challenge
• 2020-10: draft manuscript (subject to agreement by participants)
IPECAD workshop 2019
Save the date: AD Modelling Workshop, 19th-20th September, 2019, Stockholm, Sweden.
The IPECAD modelling group is planning an upcoming inaugural IPECAD workshop on modelling methods aligned to the health policy context for Alzheimer’s disease. This workshop is invitation only, and aimed at people who are research active in this area, and those in close collaborations with people/teams who are research active in this area.
In this workshop we wish to bring together people who are active in the area of Alzheimer’s disease decision-modelling, and who are developing modelling methods in the context of cost-effectiveness analyses and health technology assessment, or disease progression models that may be used in this way.
We plan for this workshop to be the first of a future series of meetings and activities to further the development of modelling methods, and the identification of data to populate decision-models, in the area of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Whilst the initial focus is on AD, we hope to be able to extend the scope of our future activity into and across related dementias, and across the full diagnostic and treatment pathways associated with dementia.
We aim to increase understanding of modelling methods in the area of Alzheimer’s disease and to facilitate methodological development, transparency and comparability, with a view to further developing methods available to support the ambition of rapid access to effective and cost-effective care for people affected by AD, and related dementias.
More information on the workshop will follow.
