The current situation
Understanding the nature of novel interventions in new therapeutics is an important part of a company's development strategy. When a particular disease model does not exist, it is necessary to create a new model.
The Archimedes advantage
In contrast to Markov and other state-transition models, the Archimedes Model uses the physiological variables that actually underlie diseases. It retains the continuous nature, interactions, and progression of biological variables, and therefore can more accurately describe the complexity of the diseases. In addition, the Archimedes Model is a single integrated model that contains pathways relating to multiple diseases and co-morbidities.
Accurate modeling of healthcare settings is just as important as accurate physiological modeling. The effect of interventions depends on the setting in which they are given as well as the population treated. The Archimedes Model represents guidelines and healthcare processes realistically, incorporating realistic probabilities that a physician will follow the guidelines as well as realistic probabilities that a patient will comply with treatment.
How you can use the Archimedes Model
Modeling & Consulting Services. Archimedes has a world-class team of scientists and physicians who will work with you to run custom simulations and build custom disease models to meet your needs. They have decades of experience creating, testing, and refining disease models. You can be confident that new disease models we help you develop will mimic the physiological, clinical, or administrative processes they are built to represent as closely as possible. More...
