31 Oct THE FUTURE OF MEDICINE AND HEALTHCARE
Working as futurist speakers for healthcare, medical, and pharmaceutical firms, we often get to see tomorrow’s business world taking shape before it arrives. Which is why we’re pleased to report that 5G wireless communications and technology promise to change the game for many providers and patients.
Case in point: Say you suffer a heart attack or stroke. Today, the quality of care you receive (and your chances of ultimate recovery) are deeply impacted by your location and the level of access that you enjoy to top hospital facilities and physicians. But now, thanks to 5G wireless technology and robotics, doctors can perform check-ups and procedures from virtually anywhere – including thousands of miles away – as equipment allows you to interact, run tests, and otherwise handle business from afar in real-time. Instant response times effectively enable a new era of distance medicine, which – as futurist speakers for healthcare and medical associations – absolutely brings a smile to our face, as it means that no matter where you are on Earth, you’ll soon be able to receive top-quality medical care on-demand: An innovation that will save countless lives.
Incredibly, for providers using 5G communications networks, it’s now possible to communicate or even operate on patients from distances of several thousands of miles away. Use of robotics will only extend the capabilities and reach of this fast-growing field, which is worth more than $10 billion today. In effect, because 5G networks provide ultra high-speed communications capabilities (eliminating the lag and latency which inhibit lower-powered and less-speedy alternatives), life-saving breakthroughs in health and telemedicine are just around the corner.
Moreover, what we’re seeing here is just the beginning of a pending revolution in the fields of technology and medicine. Coming years will only bring added advancements in the field. So even if you’re not a futurist speaker by trade or training? Or even someone who finds themselves employed by a healthcare or medical firm? The upsides are still obvious – and the amount of people whose lives will soon be impacted will be untold. Score another win for the high-tech world.
