Revolutionary Use Cases of 5G in the Healthcare Sector

The network footprint of the healthcare sector is expanding yearly. Therefore, fast network speeds and low latency are essential for more health care services and applications.

Health care IT services and applications are expected to have better connectivity thanks to the development of the new 5G technology. This development will significantly impact both patients and healthcare providers.

Using 5G technology, outdated hospital health care systems will be replaced by smart hospitals that can provide remote medical services to patients anywhere in the world.

1.  Large Data Files

The main concern should be ensuring that your company receives the appropriate solutions that meet its objectives and that those solutions work.

The healthcare sector produces massive amounts of data. From patient medical records to the substantial picture files produced by MRI, CAT, or PET scans, one patient can produce hundreds of gigabytes of data daily. 

2. Telehealth

According to an Industry Research Future pre-COVID-19 study, the telehealth market is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 16.5% between 2017 and 2023. This expansion coincides with the introduction and adoption of 5G. These will undoubtedly experience higher growth rates in the present. Doctors can interact remotely with patients in a more immersive fashion at home or in field hospitals thanks to faster network speeds and higher-quality care without experiencing network blackouts, disconnections, or lag time.

3. Real-Time Remote Monitoring 

There isn’t a low-power, 5G-native standard yet. Both LTE-M and NB-IoT provide cellular connectivity for wearables and are completely integrated into 5G. However, LTE-M and NB-IoT, which operate in-band inside the bandwidth of the 5G NR carrier, are the initial 5G native standards for battery-friendly devices.

Health care providers may monitor patients remotely and obtain real-time data thanks to the increased speed and decreased battery consumption of 5G-enabled wearable devices. For preventative care and other individually-tailored health care services, remote monitoring and data can be used.

With more trustworthy, always-on mobile personal emergency response systems, patients with chronic diseases can maintain their independence and achieve better results (PERS).

Even though remote technology has several advantages, AT&T says its use is “limited by the network’s capacity to handle the data.” Doctors might be unable to meet with patients due to a slow network and inconsistent connectivity. It could make getting important medical information about them difficult, particularly in an emergency.

4. Sensor Innovation

More medical devices will be available to people who can accurately assess and monitor their health from home, thanks to advancements in medical device technology. These DIY medical technologies will acquire, calibrate, and validate data from reliable sensors. Various medical and healthcare professionals may then receive the data for analysis. Data predicts that as patient demand rises, medical sensors will continue to advance. The Qualcomm Tricorder XPrize medical gadget competition in 2017 attracted entries with portable functionality:

“A little sensor that fits in the palm of your hand was added for the entry of patients to use at home. It is as user-friendly as a smartphone. This was a significant development, yet one sensor is insufficient. A personalized health treatment plan is made possible by doctors using a variety of patient Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) devices and sensors to deliver a full health picture for their patients.

These technologies will work in ways 3G or 4G LTE couldn’t, thanks to 5G.
