January 20, 2020 News

 

At Digi’s 5GDP showcase in Langkawi, Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) hosted Malaysia’s Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad. A live demonstration of 5G-powered real-time medical data transfer between paramedics inside Malaysia’s first 5G connected ambulance and doctors at the Hospital Sultanah Maliha Langkawi was witnessed the Prime Minister.

The continuous streaming of patient data from the arrival of paramedics to the emergency scene, right up to delivering the patient at the hospital, will deliver improved patient care experiences and better life-enhancing outcomes for patients.

During emergencies, Gigabytes of medical data can now be transferred at super speed to multiple devices. This is a crucial development in enabling remote healthcare monitoring and diagnosis. Healthcare can also be accessed by all, even in the hard-to-reach areas.

The collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Collaborative Research In Engineering, Science & Technology (CREST), and ZTE, is part of Digi’s use case in the 5G Demonstration Project (5GDP), undertaken by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to facilitate, develop and foster 5G use cases in a live but controlled environment.
