Adrian Smith, Health and Social Care Lead at West Midlands 5G has explored the role connected procedures can play in an increasing clinical capacity and patient access for Digital Leaders magazine.
5G technology offers ultra-fast speeds, greater security, and lower latency (the speed from action to reaction) compared to its predecessors.
These improvements to connectivity have enabled healthcare providers to feel confident that the privacy of patient data is fully maintained while operating remotely. Likewise, 5G mitigates the very serious and potentially life-threatening risk of spotty reception or disconnection which with previous generation networks was a barrier to making digital procedures more widespread.
