This report from the Centre for Technology Innovation at The Brookings Institution, covers how 5G differs from previous generations of advancement (3G and 4G), discussing emerging applications in health care, and demonstrating how these developments will enable new systems of care delivery. The report considers how connected medicine will help people get quality care through improvements in imaging, diagnostics, and treatment.
Rather than having computing equipment that is disparate and separate, the 5G world will allow us to enter an era where real-time health services will become the norm rather than the exception. That will bring patients closer to a science fiction concept of digital integration than ever before.
