It is not entirely true to say that medical care is the first to usher in the 5G era. Compared with other industries, there may be more news about medical care recently. At the beginning of this year, there will be more 5G applications in the media category, including the two sessions and the Spring Festival Gala live broadcasts that use 5G technology to achieve high-definition live broadcast backhaul and panoramic shooting.
In fact, there are indeed many combinations of 5G with medical institutions or hospitals, because 5G’s powerful data transmission bandwidth and massive connection capabilities will be more practical in medical scenarios. In addition, using technologies such as network slicing and edge cloud, it is possible to construct private network capabilities for the medical industry, customize some specialized services for medical care, and better empower medical care.
However, we are promoting 5G, and we will encounter some difficulties in the process of cooperation with hospitals:
First, 5G is a new generation of mobile communication technology, and the current standard version has not been completely frozen. Different forms of network equipment have different performances, and chips and modules still lag behind in the industrial chain. For the traditional medical industry, which is relatively more professional and has a greater social influence, most applications are more concerned with safety and reliability. In this case, the combination of traditional industries and new things requires a process of integration, and it will take time to fully popularize the application of 5G and medical care.
Second, the issue of safety is also an issue that the hospital is more concerned about, because now the entire medical data is relatively closed, whether the doctor or the hospital may have concerns, worrying that once the data passes 5G transmission will have hidden dangers of insecurity.
However, I am still optimistic about the application of 5G in the medical industry, including some medical-related industries, such as pension, health, medical management, insurance, etc., which will be further integrated with 5G.
In short, I hope that everyone can view the application of 5G in the medical field peacefully and objectively. It cannot be said too radically that 5G can immediately realize the comprehensive intelligence and remoteization of the medical industry. For example, for 5G remote surgery, we can do demonstrations, and we can use some indirect ways to let everyone see the benefits brought by 5G in this scenario. change, but far from reaching a very mature environment as of now.
At the same time, don’t be too conservative. 5G applications can bring a lot of changes to medical care. Whether it is a doctor or related medical practitioners, it is necessary to accept the efficiency and ability improvement brought by the new technology to the industry.
