Verizon Business is working with UK digital health firm Visionable to develop a range of connected healthcare products. The products are being developed based on Visionable’s health technology and Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband and 5G Edge networks.
The two firms are working together on a secure next-generation digital healthcare collaboration platform that enables healthcare professionals to access data, collaborate and share resources within the Asia-Pacific, Europe and Middle East regions.
The partnership seeks to address challenges such as connecting frontline responders to specialist doctors during emergencies and enabling access to community-led care for patients needing long-term support.
Visionable has developed a real-time, multi-streaming collaboration platform for clinical remote decision-making. The platform allows healthcare teams to collaborate freely across multiple locations.
“The healthcare industry generates a massive amount of data, but its ability to make good use of that data has long been hampered by network architectures that cannot handle it efficiently, securely, or cost-effectively. Through the combination of 5G and Edge computing, healthcare facilities and professionals will have access to secure near-real-time connectivity creating a new link between doctor and patient. As a result, illnesses could someday be diagnosed and treated more quickly, and medical costs could potentially decrease,” said Scott Lawrence, Senior Vice President for Verizon Global Solutions.
Visionable recently launched a private-5G enabled Connected Healthcare Centre in the UK. The centre showcases benefits of advanced healthcare connectivity and collaboration across a patient’s care journey from urgent and emergency care to virtual wards to in-person care and rehabilitation. The centre is supported by Verizon private 5G.
“Our partnership provides real-time connectivity and productivity, when and where it counts and costs. Together with Verizon, we endeavour to support our healthcare teams by enabling them to bring healthcare to the patient wherever they are,“ said Alan Lowe, CEO and Co-Founder of Visionable.
Verizon also has a strategic partnership with Emory Healthcare in Atlanta where Verizon is collaborating with Emory Healthcare to help spur the development of healthcare solutions powered by 5G Ultra Wideband.
