THE CHALLENGE

The COVID pandemic highlighted the need for digital reinvention and adoption of healthcare technology solutions, accelerating the digital transformation and introducing a paradigm shift in medical care, moving towards a medical approach that is more predictive, preventive, personalised and participatory. The deployment of digital solutions integrated with terrestrial and space technologies, particularly satellite-terrestrial 5G networks, indoor/outdoor position, navigation and timing (PNT), artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) is the opportunity to innovate the healthcare systems, moving towards more advanced and new digital services. 

Connectivity and connected devices are the basis for providing and delivering these new services applying digital solutions to some aspects of health, healthcare, or related areas. There is also an increase in demand from the rural communities, leading to an increase in being able to operate decentralised medical services in those areas. 5G will offer the needed bandwidth and therefore is expected to be the key enabler for these new solutions, offering real-time and high-quality video capabilities to various platforms. Applications such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) will further enhance doctors’ abilities to deliver innovative and less invasive treatments but can also be used for own personal and skills development. IoT devices, such as wearables, will be able to deliver real time remote monitoring and increase patient engagement. Finally, the vast amount of data needed for real-time rapid learning through AI will support more efficient remote diagnostics and provide early interventions if necessary.

It estimated that by 2025, digital products and services in the healthcare sector will grow to a market share of 12%, nearly 1 trillion Euro, within the total healthcare sector worldwide. Moreover, it is estimated that 20% of medical services could be replaced by artificial intelligence, especially in diagnosis, prevention, and monitoring.
