|Project duration||December 2018 - August 2021|
|Venture||EUREKA cluster co-funding|
Purpose and goal
The aim of Health5G project is to identify novel use cases of eHealth that take advantage of 5G capabilities, study and develop 5G enablers for the use cases, and validate actual eHealth solutions in real environments and real 5G test networks. Within the Swedish consortium, the intention is to improve home-care facilities for patients, in terms of efficiency and quality of care regarding home-based rehabilitation and therapy, as well as increase the proportion of patients monitored through Health5G innovations, and reduce the number of persons treated as in-hospital patients.
Expected results and effects
The major innovation of Health5G lies in the development of novel eHealth services and in the background technologies that enable these services. For Sweden, the Health5G project will contribute exactly with the technological advancements backed by pilot tests and demonstrators to ensure the smooth integration and access to healthcare data and treatment at home, in hospital and in emergency situations.
Planned approach and implementation
The Swedish consortium, together with the international partners, will design and develop an IoT infrastructure, with ensured security and privacy, and efficient wireless communication protocols, which will be evaluated on various eHealth use cases. The Health5G project is organized in 6 work packages (WP), and 3 sub-projects (SP), each of the latter focusing on a specific eHealth use case (hospital environment of the future, healthcare@home, and emergency situations) benefitting from 5G and the technology development and validation needed in the context of that use case.
