A Look at Wi-Fi Versus Cellular for Remote Patient Monitoring

There’s a lot of buzz in the health care industry about the coming 5G wireless standard, which promises to bring high speed, low latency connections to businesses. With 5G, health care organizations are able to quickly and easily transmit data that requires a high bandwidth, such as CT scans and X-rays. But it will also have an impact on lower bandwidth applications, such as the data found in home health care applications.

The reality is that for most health care organizations and the patients they serve, 5G won’t be available in a broad way for at least a few years. However, remote patient monitoring (RPM) solutions—which can transform seniors’ care by helping them live independently—need reliable connectivity options to transmit data between the patient and the doctor’s office or hospital.

Beyond telehealth: the virtual care technology trends that will transform healthcare

How contact tracing, contactless experiences and remote monitoring will redefine healthcare and public health.

A recent estimate by consulting firm McKinsey suggests that $250 billion in healthcare spending could shift to virtual care models in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Notwithstanding the dramatic headline, there is no disputing that we are directionally headed towards a significant shift in the way care is delivered. If anything, the actual shift in spend could be much higher.
