Reliance Jio has signed a partnership with the Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences that will allow the latter to utilise Jio’s 5G network for advanced healthcare technology.
Jio’s ‘True 5G’ service, along with low latency, would enable novel use cases in healthcare, including robotics-based treatment or surgery, remote ICU, ICU Ambulance, community clinics, and more.
5G will not only improve existing technologies, but will also enable new use cases in healthcare, such as robotics-based treatment and surgery, remote ICU and ICU ambulance, community clinics, and more.
Reliance Jio and emergency medical response service provider Medulance Healthcare launched their 5G-Smart connected ambulance in October of this year. Medulance Healthcare intends to use Jio’s 5G network to transform its nationwide fleet of over 7,500 ambulances into smart ambulances.
The vehicle is equipped with cameras and smart technologies that enable real-time, two-way audio and video communication, transmission of high-definition footage, ambulance location tracking, and real-time streaming of patient health data to a distant doctor over the high-speed 5G network. This alerts the nearest hospital and professionals, allowing them to better manage the patient upon arrival and save critical time.
