Verizon: 5G healthcare innovation lab with Emory
(CercleFinance.com) - US wireless telecommunications company Verizon said it has entered into a strategic partnership with Emory University Hospital in Atlanta to test the use of 5G ultra wideband network for the healthcare industry.
Veizon's super-fast 5G technology will enable real-time data analytics, so researchers can explore solutions such as connected ambulances, remote physical therapy and next-generation medical imaging, the wireless operator said.
Emory will also be able to test how 5G could enhance augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) applications for medical training, facilitating telemedicine and remote patient monitoring, Verizon said.
As part of the project, the partners have opened the first 5G healthcare innovation lab in the US.
