About the webinar

This engaging webinar brought together the collective experiences of distinguished doctors, specialist pharmacists and nurses and commissioners in their respective fields of work. We unraveled the patient pathway in London’s ophthalmology landscape, spanning from diagnosis to treatment for Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Diabetic Macular Oedema (DMO). We also shared real world outcomes for ranibizumab biosimilar use, and demonstrated how valuable insights can be gained from data visuals using dynamic dashboards created by NHS LPP’s Business Intelligence service.
