About 10% of adults live with diabetes in Europe. Despite advances in care, education, medication, tools and technologies, the diabetes prevalence continues to rise, more than one third of people living with diabetes (PWD) remain undiagnosed, and up to half the PwD do not achieve adequate blood glucose management.
Novel approaches in healthcare design, delivery and financing together with technology-led innovation have the potential to address the key barriers to the delivery of high-quality diabetes care and the huge burden to PwD associated with fragmented care. The adoption of innovative tools and approaches and/or their deployment beyond their original setting/at scale is often constrained.
To highlight key innovative developments and ways in which the adoption of innovation can be promoted, IDF Europe launched a new publication:
“Delivering Value through Innovation in Diabetes Care Delivery”
After an introduction by IDF Europe’s co-chair, Nebojsa Lalic, on the current challenges of diabetes care in Europe and the priorities of the diabetes community, our guest panellists shared their experience and insight on how innovation is enabling a transformation in the delivery of diabetes care.
