Lunch & Learn: Connected Health & Social Care – 10th May

5G enables new ways of delivering services to patients, both in hospital and social care environments and to support independent living and reduce the burden of repetitive and labour-intensive tasks.  From the use of robots to support logistical management to VR for pain management to wearables for real time data management – the utilisation of private, on-site 5G networks can help health and social care providers support patients in new and innovative ways that can manage thousands of connected devices at one time.

This week, we held our second Lunch & Learn event, following our successful event exploring Connected Manufacturing earlier this year.

Business Engagement Manager for S5GConnect Dumfries, Andy Todman hosted Lunch & Learn: Connected Health & Social Care held on 10th May 2022 exploring how 5G and advanced connectivity can support the health sector.

S5GConnect Dumfries, The Centre’s first rural hub supports eco-systems in Dumfries and Galloway specifically, and Scotland more broadly, to help health and social care professionals understand the opportunities that 5G connectivity can offer.

Following an introduction from Andy Todman, the session’s guest speaker Leigh Manton, EMEA Director, AT&T Consulting and Professional Services gave a presentation on enabling improved patient care highlighting how 5G can support and connect healthcare throughout the patient’s journey – including A&E, in patient care locations like hospitals, surgery centre’s and clinics and at home, improving care and operational efficiency.
