5G has the potential to share large medical images, facilitate telehealth programs, and enable remote patient management tools, as well as allowing more advanced AI and augmented and virtual reality applications.
Fremont, CA: By increasing speed and capacity while lowering latency, 5G technology has the ability to improve healthcare delivery. While it is still in its beginnings, this influential network has enormous healthcare potential.
5G has the potential to share large medical images, facilitate telehealth programs, enable remote patient management tools, and allow more advanced AI and augmented and virtual reality applications.
5G will also allow for quicker downloads and connectivity on mobile devices and tablets used in healthcare environments, and it will possibly be suitable for Wi-Fi 6. However, many concerns remain, which is why healthcare leaders need to be aware of the changing 5G environment and the associated challenges.
The high-quality video fueled by 5G will help patients and providers achieve a fast, transparent link as more organizations release or extend their telehealth offerings. This, however, would necessitate the availability of 5G coverage, which is 10 to 100 times faster than a regular 4G cellular service, both in remote areas and at the point of care delivery.
5G is also expected to support a growing network of Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) devices and other wearables used for remote patient monitoring. Clinicians may track vital signs, drug adherence, and other data from afar in order to personalize treatment.
To that end, 5G would be essential for sending large images, and it will pave the way for imaging devices like X-rays and MRIs to work wirelessly. It can also assist in the creation of augmented and virtual reality educational methods for complex medical scenarios.
