In the fast-growing wireless communication industry, there are a few big names. Wireless technologies enable new, innovative, and advanced use-cases in a wide range of industries, including healthcare. The current worldwide breakout of the COVID-19 pandemic has provided the sector with various new opportunities.
Endless Possibilities in Healthcare
Like any other industry, the healthcare industry is undergoing a fast digital transformation. Wireless technology usage in healthcare is steadily expanding for various reasons, the most important of which is the world's aging population and the resulting increase in hospital patient load. Modern healthcare infrastructure and technologies rely on seamless communication to handle the expanding number of patients and offer quality care. This is where wireless internet comes into play.
Telehealth and Remote Patient Care Are on The Rise
Telehealth, often known as telemedicine, has been around for a while, allowing physicians to perform healthcare services from a distance. During the COVID-19 crisis, patients and professionals alike shifted to remote healthcare services, causing its popularity to skyrocket in 2020.
During a pandemic, wireless communication can be used for more than only telemedicine. Many countries have introduced AI-powered contract tracing apps that are supported via Bluetooth, the internet, and GPS to follow COVID-19 patients in real-time. Even after the pandemic, remote healthcare adoption is projected to increase, creating new prospects for the wireless connectivity market.
