In other more elaborate Markov models, the transitions among various states could also result in cost expenditures that need to be accumulated over the entire running period to estimate the overall costs of competing treatment strategies. Ultimately, such analyses deal with the average costs and lengths of time associated with various health states. The ratio of cumulative cost over time is referred to as the average cost effectiveness ratio ([ACER]; ACER = cost/time). The ACER combines the medical perspective of health time with the economic perspective of costs spent to make this health time happen.

In essence, patients are shifted back and forth between the two Markov states of acute and healed ulcers until a steady state is reached. In the example of Figure 2-6, the analysis was started with 100 patients in the state of acute ulcerations. By looking at the numbers of patients in each two boxes of consecutive months, one can appreciate that after 4 months the numbers of patients in the acute and healed ulcer states start to approach some steady state. If the chain is continued for a few more months, a steady state is achieved with 17 patients staying continuously in the acute state and 83 patients in the healed ulcer state.
