By enhancing connectivity at home, outside of home or in a nursing home, the use case will include point of care testing, patient generated health data collection and video capture in acute situations. The steps taken will be:

  1. implement real-time data collection (personal sensor data and video), storage to cloud and integration to health information systems and 5G network;
  2. display the data to the person, or to care personnel if needed or requested (services);
  3. develop 5G capabilities to support the needed functionalities.

Need for 5G: The aforementioned use cases need 5G in terms of data security, transferring lag-free video, scalability, fog computing architecture, fast data analysis, reliability, coverage, and data aggregation.
