Case study: How Vodafone is nurturing innovation in healthcare around the world

Take a look how Vodafone is nurturing innovative new projects around the world

The Frankfurt University Hospital will receive its own dedicated 5G network, thanks to Vodafone with support from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) digital programme. CEF is an EU fund with a mandate to promote growth, jobs and competitiveness through targeted infrastructure investment in Europe.

The dedicated 5G network will help connect doctors, nurses, patients and support staff in innovative and potentially lifesaving ways, including 5G-enabled Tele-heart and digital medical messengers.

How can it help in healthcare?

The fast and highly responsive nature of 5G is ideal for bringing together specialists dispersed across multiple sites at the Frankfurt University Hospital, enhancing patient care and surgical procedures. Diagnostic data such as ultrasound and computed tomography (CT) scan information can be transmitted in real-time to wherever it is needed most.

Medical messaging

5G is also being used to support Frankfurt University Hospital’s medical messenger service, Famedly. This enables the transfer of chat history between hospital staff to be sent directly to the patient’s file, along with vital data from, for example, biosensors and anaesthesia documentation. With clinical communication at the very core of the patient journey, being able to confidently communicate across hospital buildings is detrimental to positive clinical outcomes.

Vodafone in Health

Progressive partnerships like the one between Frankfurt University Hospital and Vodafone are the way forward to meeting the EU’s 2030 ‘5G For All’ connectivity targets and giving European citizens access to world leading healthcare.
