Nowadays, 5g medical exploration is carried out in different scenarios of about 100 hospitals, including remote consultation, remote operation, mobile ward round, emergency rescue and hospital monitoring, etc. 5g medical has become one of the leaders in 5g industry. From the perspective of global intelligent medical market, intelligent medical is in a stable development stage. According to relevant data, the annual compound growth rate of global intelligent medical service expenditure from 2016 to 2018 is about 60%. It is estimated that the global intelligent medical service industry will reach US $400 billion in 2019.
Japan has entered a highly aging society. The proportion of the elderly over 60 years old in the total population has reached 20.5%. The demand for intelligent medical products related to elderly diseases is extremely strong. In Europe, due to the aging society, the influx of a large number of unplanned immigrants and the demand for medical equipment upgrading, the market of intelligent medical equipment in European countries is growing rapidly. Among them, Germany has become the largest manufacturer and exporter of intelligent medical devices in Europe.
The prospect of 5g healthcare in China is very broad. On the one hand, due to the serious imbalance of medical resources, telemedicine demand is strong. On the other hand, medical resources will become more tense and need digital improvement. Facing the current medical situation in China, digital medical has become the key to solve the problem. Among them, 5g intelligent medical has become an important direction.
5g provides high bandwidth, low latency and large connection, making mobile remote diagnosis and remote surgery possible, and improving the efficiency of hospital internal management. Coupled with cloud computing, MEC, big data, artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies, the transformation and upgrading of medical information and telemedicine platform will be accelerated. 5g has three characteristics: high speed, low delay and Dalian connection, which can support 5g intelligent medical applications. The high bandwidth of 5g network can support 4K / 8K remote high-definition consultation and high-speed transmission and sharing of medical image data, so that experts can consult anytime and anywhere, so that remote consultation is no longer just a luxury.
There is a lack of excellent ultrasound doctors in basic hospitals. We urgently need to establish a remote ultrasound system that can achieve high-definition without delay. Remote ultrasound is performed by remote experts to control the robot arm to perform ultrasound examination on patients in primary hospitals. 5g can realize remote ultrasound, 5g has millisecond delay characteristics. Compared with traditional private line and Wi Fi, 5g network can solve the problems of large-scale construction in remote areas such as primary hospitals and islands, and the problems of unsafe data transmission, remote control and high delay in Wi Fi.
5g can provide wide area continuous coverage for ambulances, realize the desire of patients to get on the bus and be admitted to hospital, and send back the scene situation through 5g network HD video. At the same time, the vital signs of patients and diseases can be returned to the backstage command center in real time. In general, 5g network can transmit real-time monitoring information of medical equipment, real-time positioning information of vehicle and video image inside and outside the vehicle, which is convenient for hospital doctors to implement remote consultation and remote guidance.
Medical education and training have high requirements for context, and ordinary training is difficult to achieve the desired effect. Therefore, through 5g network, virtual teaching based on AR / VR can be realized, and 3D digital model can be used for teaching and training. Compared with the traditional way, learners have a stronger sense of immersion.
The daily distribution task of the hospital is heavy, which makes nurses and nursing workers occupy a lot of time and energy, and nursing human resources are more and more tense. Based on the characteristics of 5g high bandwidth, hospital logistics robot has become an important application of hospital driverless, which can effectively solve the material distribution problem of the whole hospital and improve the work efficiency of medical staff. When the medical staff complete the order in the delivery system, the robot can quickly and accurately deliver the goods to the designated place, so as to alleviate the problem of nursing staff shortage.
The low latency and large bandwidth of 5g network make it possible to operate in different places. Using medical robots and high-definition audio and video interaction system, remote experts can provide timely remote surgery for patients in primary medical institutions. In addition, 5g network can also realize remote monitoring, intelligent guidance, mobile health care, intelligent hospital management, AI assisted medical and other scenarios, effectively improving the medical level.
