Realising 5G potential in healthcare

December 2020

5G networks could transform – and improve – all the critical components of healthcare, a subject especially meaningful today as the spread of the coronavirus has put unprecedented stress on healthcare systems around the world. It promises to provide essential levels of connectivity to enable a new health ecosystem, one that can meet patient and provider needs accurately, efficiently, conveniently, cost-effectively and at a substantial scale.

5G’s features could prove valuable for a range of healthcare applications – from telehealth to remote surgery, from transferring of large medical files to tracking patient movements inside facilities, from the use of wearables for real-time monitoring to delivering continuous treatment support to patients.
