The deployment of fifth generation wireless (5G) networks across the country will enable a myriad of new and advanced telehealth capabilities and applications through faster speeds and instantaneous network responsiveness.
Implementation of 5G will mean improvements in real-time disease diagnosis, population analytics, patient outcomes, and remote access capabilities – all leading to more efficient, higher quality technology-enabled care.
Join Health IT Now and a panel of expert guests for a conversation on the promise of 5G in health care, current steps the administration is taking to support the implementation of 5G, and the remaining barriers that must be addressed before 5G can be leveraged to its fullest potential.
