5G4Healthcare is one of the six research projects funded in the context of the 5G Innovation Programme of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure.
The goal of the 5G4Healthcare project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, is to explore the feasibility, opportunities, and limitations of improving the effectiveness and efficiency of rural healthcare through 5G technology and to derive recommendations for scalable solutions. Under the leadership of OTH Amberg-Weiden, the use of 5G in healthcare is being designed (Phase 1), implemented as a model (Phase 2), tested and evaluated (Phase 3). In this context, the new mobile communications standard 5G forms the basis for innovative medical care and services such as real-time ECG transmission from ambulances, robot-assisted operations, and remote monitoring and analysis of patients' vital data. The results of the project will be used to develop new solutions that will serve as a blueprint for a consistent digital health-based medical care approach in rural regions.
