据Verizon公司一位官员称,旨帮助医疗保健和紧急医疗服务(EMS)结果的应用程序是目前Verizon 5G第一反应器实验室测试的重点,该实验室计划延长到今年年底

Verizon公共部门产品开发总监尼克·尼兰(Nick Nilan)表示,该公司此前5G第一反应器实验室所做的工作总体上展示了Verizon 5G超宽带网络实现的一些创新,它利用运营商巨大的毫米波频谱组合来提供前所未有的无线连接速度。第四轮5G计划中,Verizon官员希望开发解决方案,回答EMS社区面临的关键问题

“如果不好的事情即将发生或发生,你如何确保你能更早地意识到这一点,不管是受害者还是急救人员?尼兰接受IWCE紧急通讯采访时说。“如何确保前往事故现场的急救医疗技术人员前往现场的途中掌握尽可能多的信息?

“我们可以5G上利用的技术有很多机会,可以改善响应时间和提高态势感知能力,从而拯救生命。”

据Nilan称,Verizon决定延长与现有合作伙伴公司的合作时间,希望开发出更集成的解决方案

他说:“最后一批人的好处是,我们实际上要一起工作6个月,我们已经承诺到年底一起工作,所以比过去12周的时间要长得多。”。“我们知道会有一些潜的整合,还有一些更大的挑战,我们正努力解决…”

根据Verizon的一份新闻稿,参与这一队列的五家公司——第四批通过5G第一反应器实验室的公司是

  • “生物多样性:专注于近实时远程医疗监测
  • Rave Mobile Safety:提供关键的通信和数据共享平台
  • DispatchHealth:为您提供随叫随到的医疗服务
  • Vuzix:使用增强现实技术更好地通知第一响应者;以及
  • 可预见:提供了一个近乎实时的医疗协作平台。”

尼兰说:“对于每一家公司,我们都利用它们市场上已有的令人兴奋的解决方案,并将其引入5G环境。”

如果没有Verizon 5G超宽带提供的可靠高速连接,Vuzix提供的增强现实眼镜等解决方案可能无法实际用于公共安全

尼兰说:“Vuzix可以增强现实。“他们有非常轻的眼镜,前面有一个摄像头,并且有显示器,让警官能够从他们的眼睛水平,而不是胸部水平,像传统的全身式摄像机那样,可以进行视频流

“警察案件中,它还(允许一个机构)向他们提供信息,而不必把视线从嫌疑人身上移开。或者,急诊室,急诊科不必把手从病人身上拿开,这样他们就可以实际需要做的工作上看到一个正面显示。”

除了提供更高的数据速度和较低的延迟外,5G的设计目的是支持比以前的无线技术多出几倍多的设备。尼兰说,这一特性医疗领域尤其有用,因为它意味着可以从连接的监控工具中共享更多信息,无论是专业的医疗传感器还是商用可穿戴设备

Nilan说,DispatchHealth可能是这种好处的一个主要例子

“这些事情今天就发生了,”尼兰伤心地说。“我们可以4G网络上实现互联健康、远程医疗或远程医疗。但是,由于网络上有许多设备,以及对网络延迟连接的依赖性,我认为5G将提供此类技术的爆炸式增长,而Dispatch Health真正处于启用更多远程医疗远程诊断的悬崖边上。”

Nilan认为,生物多样性和可预见性还依赖于远程监测患者信息,尽管它们是为非常不同的使用情况而设计的

Nilan说,Biotricity的解决方案面向需要长期护理的患者,例如,对于从手术中康复或患有慢性病的患者,他们可以呆家里,而医疗专业人员可以远程监控他们的病情。Visionable是专为急救人员紧急情况下响应患者而设计的

Nilan说:“Visionable更多的是你如何为医疗保健进行实时视频协作,尤其是那些救护车后面的急救人员。”。“这正是我们对他们感到非常兴奋的地方,他们把救护车上的急救人员与急诊室或医生联系起来,这样他们就可以更好地了解病人是如何进入(医疗机构)的。”

尼兰说,通过Rave移动安全平台整合来自所有这些应用程序的信息是Verizon官员希望这一队列中实现的目标之一

尼兰说:“我们真的很兴奋这一次,我们会看看接下来的六个月会带来什么。”。“敏捷开发技术的前端,你不知道接下来的六个月会带来什么

“我们知道问题陈述是什么:一般来说,我如何黄金时段减少时间,如何拯救生命?希望我们正做的工作能够实现这个目标。我们对这五家公司感到非常兴奋,他们是伟大的创新者。”

Verizon还宣布,它正接受来自实体的申请,这些实体希望参与公司第五批5G第一响应者实验室,该实验室将专注于火灾响应和态势感知解决方案。这些参与者将今年第四季度选出

Applications designed to aid healthcare and emergency medical services (EMS) outcomes are the focus of current testing in Verizon’s 5G First Responder Lab that is scheduled to extend through the end of the year, according to a company official.

Nick Nilan, Verizon’s director of public-sector product development, said the company’s previous work in the 5G First Responder Lab generally showcased some of the innovation enabled by Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network, which leverages the carrier’s vast millimeter-wave spectrum portfolio to deliver unprecedented wireless connectivity speeds. In this fourth round of the 5G initiative, Verizon officials hope to develop solutions that answer key questions faced by the EMS community.

“If something bad is about to happen or happens, how do you make sure that you’re aware of that sooner, whether that’s the victim or the emergency services?” Nilan said during an interview with . “And how do make sure that the emergency medical technicians that are on their way to the incident have as much information as possible on the way to the scene?

“The technology that we can leverage on 5G has a lot of opportunities that improve the response times and improve the situational awareness to—we hope—save lives.”

Verizon decided to extend the length of time it will spend with the current group of partner companies—known as a cohort—in the hopes of developing more integrated solutions, according to Nilan.

“The nice thing about this last cohort is that we’re actually going to be together for six months—we’ve committed to through the end of the year to work together, so it’s a lot longer than the 12 weeks that we’ve had in the past,” he said. “We knew that there were going to be some integrations potentially and some bigger challenges that we were trying to tackle..”

According to a Verizon press release, the five companies participating in this cohort—the fourth group to go through the 5G First Responder Lab—are;

  • “Biotricity: Focuses on near real-time remote medical monitoring;
  • Rave Mobile Safety: Offers a critical-communications and data-sharing platform;
  • DispatchHealth: Provides on-call medical care to your door;
  • Vuzix: Uses augmented reality to better inform First Responders; and
  • Visionable: Provides a platform for near real-time medical collaboration.”

“With each of these companies, we’re leveraging the exciting solutions they already have in the market and bringing that into a 5G environment,” Nilan said.

Solutions like the augmented-reality glasses provided by Vuzix may not be of practical use for public safety without the reliable high-speed connectivity that Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband provides.

“Vuzix does augmented reality,” Nilan said. “They have glasses that are very lightweight, has a camera up front, and has display for officers to be able to have video streaming from their eye level, rather than their chest level, like a body-worn camera does traditionally.

“It also [allows an agency] to give them information without having to take their eyes off of a suspect, in a police case. Or, in an EMS case, that EMT doesn’t have to take their hands off of that patient, so they get a heads-up display about what they’re seeing overlaid on the work they actually have to do.”

In addition to providing higher data speeds and lower latency, 5G is designed to support several times more devices within a cell sector than previous wireless technologies. This characteristic is especially helpful in the medical arena, because it means more information can be shared from connected monitoring tools, whether they are specialized medical sensors or commercial wearable devices, Nilan said.

DispatchHealth could be a prime example of this benefit, Nilan said.

“These things happen today,” Nilan sad. “We can do connected health, telemedicine or telehealth on the 4G network. But with a number of devices on the network and then the dependency on the latency connectivity of the network, I think 5G is going to offer an explosion of that type of technology, and Dispatch Health really sits on the precipice of enabling more of that telemedicine remote diagnostics.”

Biotricity and Visionable also depend on monitoring patient information remotely, although they are designed for very different use cases, according to Nilan.

Biotricity’s solutions are geared toward patients needing long-term care—for instance, for a person recovering from surgery or with a chronic condition—so they stay at home while their conditions can be monitored remotely by healthcare professionals, Nilan said. Visionable is designed for use by EMS when responding to a patient during an emergency response.

“Visionable is more about how you do real-time video collaboration for healthcare, especially for those EMTs in the back of an ambulance,” Nilan said. “That’s what we’re really excited about with them, connecting the EMTs in an ambulance to the ER or a doctor, so they can get better information about how that patient on the way in [to a healthcare facility].”

Integrating information from all of these applications through the Rave Mobile Safety platform is among the goals that Verizon officials hope to achieve during this cohort, Nilan said.

“We’re really excited about this one, and we’ll see what the next six months bring,” Nilan said. “The neat thing about being at the front end of some technology with agile development is that you don’t know what the next six months is going to bring.

“We have an idea what the problem statement is: How do I reduce time during that golden hour, and how do I save lives, in general? Hopefully, the work that we’re doing can achieve that objective. We’re really excited about these five companies—they’re great innovators.”

Verizon also announced that it is accepting applications from entities that want to participate in the company’s fifth cohort of the 5G First Responder Lab, which will be focused on fire-response and situational-awareness solutions. Those participants will be selected during the fourth quarter of this year.
