On the 4th March 2021, Dr Vera Stavroulaki from WINGS ICT Solutions, presented a webinar on “Remote health monitoring and emergency services powered by 5G”, as part of the 5G-TOURS webinar series.

The webinar showcased solutions for remote health monitoring of people, especially when already diagnosed with a critical disease still compatible with home care (e.g., some form of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, etc.). The main features offered, utilising the WINGS STARLIT platform, include: (a) real time remote health monitoring services of the patients main vital-signs, and (b) quick, reliable notifications to users, family members and health care professionals in case of a health incident or a health emergency prediction. The Webinar also shortly showcased how, when an emergency has been identified, optimal ambulance routing is triggered to navigate the ambulance through areas with 5G coverage to ensure the provision of medical help on the go as well as timely patient transfer.
