Diabetes webinar holding slide_4 3 05.08.16

Our one-hour live webinar that delved into measuring the cost of the right interventions in diabetes took place on Thursday 8th September.

Diabetes is one of the most prevalent and costly conditions worldwide – with a prevalence equating to 8.5% of the global population. Due to the complex nature of the disease, with numerous co-morbidities and its asymptomatic nature, accurately modelling and therefore discerning which interventions are most effective in terms of both cost and patient impact is an equally complicated process.

This webinar explored the patient pathway and how effective modelling – when pharma works together with healthcare stakeholders – can improve outcomes for both patients and the healthcare system as a whole.

Topics covered included:

  • The burden of diabetes – prevalence and cost of the disease and its complications
  • The challenges of early diagnosis and prevention
  • The challenges of diabetes modelling and future opportunities
  • How modelling will aid the value and access argument
  • Learnings from global markets
  • Recent case studies – successes and failures

The live webinar took place on Thursday 8 September at 15.00 BST / 16.00 CEST. To view this webinar on demand, please click here or on the button above/below.
