With the official issuance of 5g commercial license in China, 5g technology began to enter people’s life. With 5g “blessing”, what changes will happen to medical services? At the Boao Forum for Asia Global Health Forum conference held in Qingdao, Shandong Province, “5g + medical” has become a hot topic. From the picture depicted by experts, people can see that 5g technology will greatly improve the overall efficiency of medical services, promote the development and model reconstruction of health service system, and profoundly change people’s medical experience.

What kind of spark will 5g technology and medical meet? Experts have given many unexpected answers.

“In the future, the ward may no longer need a medical monitor, but quickly transmit the patient’s information to the workstation through the 5g network through the information patch”, “the ward round in the intensive care unit can be realized through the remote operation of the robot”, “the patient’s previous electronic cases can be accessed in the ambulance, various checklists can be issued, and the first aid can be moved forward”. 5g technology has greatly expanded the space and content of medical and health services.

“The network demand of medical scenario is very large, and large bandwidth, low delay and security are the typical characteristics of 5g, which exactly meets the needs of future medical development.” Zhao Jie, director of the National Engineering Laboratory of internet medical system and application, said that 5g will completely subvert the current medical ecology. With the integration of 5g technology and medical service demand, the interconnection of in-hospital equipment, the development of inter hospital medical business, and the organic combination of out of hospital emergency treatment and regional medical system are expected to be realized quickly.

“The comprehensive performance of 5g network is 100 times that of 4G, and the delay reaches the millisecond level, which makes the future medical system run smoothly.” Zhao Jie said that after continuous testing and improvement, the application of 5g in medical treatment will develop rapidly.

Internet diagnosis and treatment, telemedicine and training, e-prescription + trial, family tour. With the successive introduction of a series of policy documents and continuous exploration by various countries, the form of “Internet plus medical health” is becoming more and more abundant. Experts believe that the application of 5G technology will continue to expand the extension of “Internet plus medical health” and re plan the mode and system of medical services, and medical education and medical research will also change.

Hospital bed technology based on operations research, optimal surgical prediction model of acute pancreatitis based on time series, prediction and diagnosis model of clinical diseases based on medical images. Zhang Wei, Party Secretary of West China Hospital of Sichuan University and director of West China biomedical big data center, believes that predictive intervention medicine will be applied in the new health care service mode and management, and the diagnosis and treatment choices driven by big data and artificial intelligence may change the surgical path and reduce the disability rate and mortality rate of patients.

“Chronic disease management services will also have a new format.” Zhang Wei said that customized treatment can be carried out when there is uncertainty in the early stage of chronic diseases, and standardized treatment can be realized by means of wearable devices and sensors in the later stage. Experts believe that the combination of remote visual technology, the connection of biosensors and inductive sensors, and image diagnosis technology under image recognition technology will lead to the trend of medical service platform and de organization under the mobile Internet.

“Big data and artificial intelligence can’t make doctors lose their jobs, but doctors who don’t understand big data and artificial intelligence will lose their jobs.” Zhang Wei said that the reform of medical education system in the new era based on “new medicine” will take place, and the knowledge system of medical talents needs to be reconstructed, such as the cultivation of interdisciplinary and compound talents of science, engineering and medicine, the classification of nursing and health management personnel, etc.

The prospect of “5g + medical” is really exciting. However, experts believe that at this stage, it still faces the bottleneck and risk of development and needs to be treated rationally“ 5g networking is still in its infancy, applications need to be developed, and new equipment and technologies need to be improved. ” Lu Qingjun, director of the national telemedicine and Internet Medical Center, believes that “5g + medical” is currently facing problems such as expensive networking, high cost and difficult iteration. Moreover, the durability and stability of 5g communication remain to be observed.

Artificial intelligence is an important application direction of 5g technology. Lu Qingjun said that artificial intelligence is good at logic, but it does not know the complex causality. Moreover, the establishment of medical ethics and doctor-patient responsibility, the intervention of laws and regulations and the intervention of economic model all have a great impact on the design model of artificial intelligence“ Clinical is not allowed to make mistakes and fluctuations. ” Lu Qingjun said that when 5g networking is still in an unstable state, clinical application must be cautious.

The medical industry is a data intensive industry. With the increase of data generation and sharing, the accumulation of medical data is accelerated, which puts forward higher requirements for collection, storage and management. Han Hongkun, chairman and President of disjie (Beijing) data management technology Co., Ltd., believes that whether data can be “shared at the second level” is related to the speed of up and down referral and the speed of patients obtaining information, which requires “medical brain” to carry out real-time “data governance”.

Some experts also believe that in order to adapt to the new changes in the medical and health business format brought about by technological changes such as 5g, the governance structure, personnel and salary system, medical service pricing and payment system of public hospitals need to be changed accordingly. At the same time, the national supervision on the quality and safety of medical services and result evaluation should also be strengthened.
