Connecting healthcare through 5G

Access our 5G testbed to develop and trial your innovations

Accelerating 5G-connected innovations from concept to bedside

Taking your technology from concept to deployment in healthcare spaces – while ensuring that it is robust and futureproof – can be challenging without the right infrastructure and support.

Whether you’re looking to scale up your prototype or seeking specialist expertise to gain regulatory approval, we can help. Our 5G testbed is a unique environment in which to develop and trial your innovations in a space designed to mirror a real-life hospital environment. CPI also has extensive experience in supporting innovative companies with electronic product development using a wide range of novel technologies. By drawing on our networks in the healthcare and innovation ecosystem, our experts can support you on the path from growing your idea to implementing your technology.

Why 5G matters for Healthcare?

The global 5G in healthcare market size is expected to grow by 34.5% (CAGR) through to 2030.

Demand for telemedicine is growing, with 54% of patients with chronic diseases now accepting remote healthcare.

The NHS has around 55 million primary care records in the UK, fragmented across many systems.

Creating a smart healthcare ecosystem

Enhancing healthcare systems with smart technologies hinges on developing consistent, secure, and seamless connections for numerous interconnected devices in the ecosystem. Yet barriers such as lack of infrastructure, risk management support, and limited access to expertise needed to gain regulatory approval are hindering the development of 5G-enabled devices. 

Despite enthusiasm to embrace transformative 5G technology, healthcare decision-makers often have misplaced concerns regarding 5G’s reliability and resilience compared to traditional wired connections. Private 5G networks align with the goals set by the NHS Long Term Plan and respond to the urgent and evolving digital needs of the healthcare landscape.
