Abstract

In the literature, Information communication technology (ICT)-assisted health systems have been intensively discussed. However, it has seldom become a reality. This is mainly due to the current wireless technologies' limited transmission rate, few connected devices and high latency. On the contrary, the fifth generation (5G) wireless communications can connect more devices, provide faster transmission rates and a lower latency. In this article, we first introduce the 5G-enabled health systems and our specific implementation in the first affiliated hospital of Zhengzhou University (FAHZZU). Afterwards, the potential challenges and future research trends on demonstrating the 5G-enabled health systems are discussed.
