In this pandemic that is raging across the globe, healthcare workers are overburdened with thousands of patients to look after every day. There is a severe shortage of necessary equipment like PPE kits, masks, oxygen cylinders, hospital beds, and medical staff running back and forth to arrange them for patients in need. Currently, there are 138 million cases of coronavirus worldwide and coupled with the aging population, we have a significant health crisis on our hands. In the United States alone, there have been 565,000 deaths so far, and the numbers are only going up.
The situation is very grim, and this situation could get worse for the hospitals when there will be a mismatch of accounts or health insurance claims are denied. Patients are always the top priority for any medical institution, and secondary jobs like medical billing come later. When there is already a huge burden on staff, jobs like this could get extremely tough to maintain. In this situation, hospitals need to outsource their medical billing and transcription services to healthcare BPO providers.
The fifth-generation cutting edge wireless cellular technology is around the corner and all sectors of industries are crowding up to get hands-on it. Due to its low latency and reliability with a bandwidth spectrum in the orders of millimeters, 5G has the potential to change the landscapes of how healthcare systems work. If the clinicians start building infrastructures to take full advantage of this state – of – the – art technology, patients and trainees can have real-time streaming of diagnostic animations, inferences using AI systems, widespread access to high-resolution imaging and high – speed rendering of audio and visuals at a remote distance.
Healthcare Industries are quickly catching up to this ground-breaking technology and here are some of the ways they can properly utilize it.
Ultra-fast Gigabyte Speed
5G is invented on the promises that it will surpass its predecessors in terms of its data transfer speed and the healthcare industries can use that opportunity to enable remote access of clinical facilities and even allow clinicians to review MRI results outside the four walls of the hospital with a transfer of large files at gigabyte speed.
