This report summarises the key discussion points of the webinar "How 5G Can Support Transformation in the Healthcare Industry" organized by IDC in collaboration with Trust-IT, as one of the activities included in the European project Global5G.org, a Coordination and Support Action for Phase 2 of the 5G PPP. One of the goals of Global5G.org is highlighting the opportunities and the challenges that 5G will entail for the European Healthcare sector over the next few years.
Eleven 5G PPP phase 2 projects came together to showcase their latest achievements on 5G at ICT2018, 4-6 December in Vienna. Two demo stands, 5G In Action and 5GCity, showcased current achievements on the road to 5G across Europe, while the stand on 5G - Smart Connectivity, was located in the area for public private partnerships, offering a strategic location for new alliances with key stakeholders.
As exciting as the technology advances of 5G are, its real future lies in successful and widespread take-up by the vast array of vertical sectors that stand to benefit from its features. But this take-up won’t happen automatically – a rich and constant dialogue both at the technical and application levels must arise between the technology providers and the vertical industry stakeholders. That was the vision of the VIS5G Workshop: to nurture this dialogue into self-sustaining momentum.
Three new 5G PPP projects were introduced in an EuCNC Special Session chaired by David Kennedy, the To-Euro-5G project coordinator, in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The projects starting on 1 July 2018 – 5G EVE, 5G-VINNI and 5GENESIS – will address the challenge of H2020 EC 5G PPP ICT-17-2018: 5G End to End Facility. These three projects were selected on merit from 16 proposals received and will run for 3 years.

We are at the dawn of major transformations in healthcare as we move towards Health 4.0. How can 5G and IoT enable these transformations and what barriers need addressing to fully realise the benefits?
Global5G.org is organising its first 5G Health Session during the IEEE 5G Summit on 18 September 2017, as part of the Helsinki5GWeek. An exceptional line-up of experts from the health Industry, Telecom and Standardisation areas will shed light on the challenging theme “The Road to 5G and Standardisation for new Health and Care Services”.
