Once all of 5G's components are fully deployed and operational, it is set to have a transformative impact on healthcare. This conference will explore some of the issues, challenges and implications of 5G in Healthcare.

The next telecommunication revolution is just around the corner: 5G or fifth-generation cellular wireless holds out the promise of downloading data at least 10x faster than today’s 4G services. 

5G promises not only increased bandwidth, but also low latency (increased responsiveness) and an ability to integrate with a host of devices attached to the network. In principle it can deliver total digital connectivity from the carrier network to the customer, completely wirelessly.

But what does 5G mean for the healthcare industry? And most importantly, how will it improve the delivery of healthcare to patients?

The benefits are likely to be seen in a number of areas, including:

  • Expanded capacity for telemedicine.
  • Improved emergency care in remote ie non-hospital environments.
  • Transmission of large data files and analysis by machine learning.
  • Real time remote monitoring and robotic surgery.

Once all of 5G's components are fully deployed and operational, it is set to have a transformative impact on healthcare.  This conference will explore some of the issues, challenges and implications of 5G in Healthcare.
