5G Boosts Personalized Care
Posted: Sep 14, 2021 | Reading Time: 2 Minutes
Even though the global rollout of 5G connectivity has been slow to start, it’s estimated that by 2025, there will be 2.8 billion 5G connections worldwide. Besides enabling us to work, learn, and travel faster, a stronger 5G connection also means a faster and more efficient connection for personalized healthcare such as remote monitoring, robotic surgery, and more.
Reports by IHS Markit and Qualcomm shows that 5G technology can enable more than $1 trillion in products and services for the global healthcare sector. The faster connection that 5G provides can speed up the use of current trending healthcare tech such as the transmission of wearable device data and remote robotic surgery, as well as provide more reliable wireless connections.
This can also lead to providing more personalized care to patients, as well as easing the access of processing, analyzing, and returning information and recommended courses of action to patients.
Here are five ways that a more personalized healthcare experience for patients can be created when paired with 5G technology.
1. Continuous monitoring for wearable health tech - Some hospitals are already learning how to incorporate vital sign data from wearables such as FitBits into personalized health treatment plans. 5G can further improve this tracking by allowing continuous monitoring from multiple wearable devices at once, which can help lower the burden of chronic disease monitoring on healthcare systems.
2. Boosting the power of predictive analytics - Improvements to biometric device tracking to monitor vital signs and activity levels through consistent data streams can also give healthcare providers the information necessary to build better predictive analytic models.
3. Focus on outcome-based business models - With the constant and more robust health information coming in from 5G signals, healthcare technology can now focus on outcome-based models as opposed to volume-based or fee-for-service models.
4. Advancing remote diagnoses and imaging - Virtual reality powered by 5G is already helping doctors and nurses train without using real patients, and virtual reality can be utilized in more patient rooms in the future to assist diagnosis and treatment.
5. Expanding the scope of health IT - The amount of data provided by 5G will offer improved access to information and a better understanding of healthcare and the human body.
“5G will be an important element in the proliferation of data, and this proliferation combined with predictive analytics and machine learning will allow physicians and researchers to access aggregated information and accumulated knowledge on the latest evidence, diagnosis and treatment trends,” the Qualcomm report finds. This will not only advance the state of medicine and health outcomes, but our understanding of the human condition itself.”
