Overview of remote diagnosis of coronavirus

China Telecom, ZTE and West China Hospital of Sichuan University, conducted remote diagnosis of the coronavirus via 5G based remote video consultation.

According to the on-site situation, ZTE has employed its CPE equipment to commission 5G services by means of outdoor 5G signals while constructing indoor coverage points.

On January 25, 5G indoor base stations were built and interconnected, and the conference room for remote diagnosis and treatment in West China Hospital was first connected to the remote diagnosis and treatment system.

On January 26, ZTE completed the rapid construction, optimization, speed test, and commissioning of the 5G indoor distribution system at another core point of the remote diagnosis and treatment system.

After the 5G network was commissioned, Sichuan health and health commission, West China Hospital, and Chengdu Public Health Clinic Center conducted remote video consultation.

In accordance with the work arrangement of the Sichuan Health and Health Commission, the 5G remote consultation system will take West China Hospital of Sichuan University as the central node, and be the first batch to access 27 hospitals that have accepted and treated patients.

In the next step, ZTE will build China’s first new 5G remote diagnosis coronavirus infection system covering three levels: Sichuan province, city, and county, to provide a “one network” for remote diagnosis in front-line hospitals that help Wuhan.

In the future, ZTE will carry out video consultation with the Wuhan front-end medical rescue team through the 5G network, so that critical patients in Wuhan can also enjoy expert diagnosis and treatment services in the West China Hospital.

Benefits of remote diagnosis of coronavirus

Remote dignosis of the coronavirus using 5G to connect doctors with patients

  • Can mitigate the risks associated with treating deadly diseases without sacrificing the speed and quality of care
  • High-quality, low-latency video enabled by 5G networks allows doctors to get a clear picture of a patient without placing them in harm’s way.
  • Patients in rural locations with limited resources can be treated by specialists, providing them access to quality care despite geographic restrictions.
  • Makes it easier for a limited number of expert doctors to treat a large number of patients in diverse locations with minimal travel.

The next-gen network’s high bandwidth supports a large number of connections, enabling more patients to seek help simultaneously. The 5G network ZTE is building for the Lei Shen Shan Hospital in Wuhan can allow an estimated 25,000 people to communicate with each other at the same time.
