Description:

Smart technology touches every facet of our lives, especially in the age of COVID-19. Having more technology means having more data, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.


Big data is transforming the health sector, making it more equitable and accessible to all, and helping doctors treat, and diagnose, patients in real time. Gone are the days where doctors had to wait on patient charts or test results—with 5G and mobile edge computing (MEC) technology, patient data can be processed, and accessed, instantaneously, catalyzing the treatment process from start to finish.


Increased access to health data can shorten wait times, offer more accurate diagnoses, and even help eliminate language barriers between patients and providers. Even better, big data, coupled with MEC technology, can strengthen machine learning to help physicians make diagnoses with near-real time analysis, fundamentally changing the diagnostic process.


Join us as we hear how the increased availability of data, coupled with MEC and 5G connectivity, is unlocking solutions in healthcare, eliminating barriers and making quality care more accessible to all.
