Health5G: Future eHealth powered by 5G

The aim of this project is to identify novel use cases of eHealth that take advantage of 5G capabilities, study and develop 5G enablers for the use cases, develop and validate actual eHealth solutions in real environments and real 5G test networks, and disseminate and exploit the results.

Background

Emerging network technologies, including the next generation mobile technology (5G), will form the backbone of future healthcare. 5G is a key enabling technology for the Internet of Things, Smart Pharmaceuticals, and Individualized Medicine. The features of 5G, such as low latency, reliability, performance, and flexibility, enable novel features to and better quality of eHealth services.

Goals of the project

The aim of our project is to identify novel use cases of eHealth that take advantage of 5G capabilities, study and develop 5G enablers for the use cases, develop and validate actual eHealth solutions in real environments and real 5G test networks, and disseminate and exploit the results.

The project will study selected high-impact and industry-driven use cases for future eHealth enabled by 5G. So far, we have identified three potential eHealth scenarios: healthcare@home, hospital environment of the future, and emergency situations; all including technology-focused sub-use cases benefitting from 5G. The aim is to refine the scenarios and use cases during the project together with partners in order to increase the societal, business, and scientific impacts of the project.
