5G: AT&T and Rush System for Health: Creating the Hospital of the Future

Posted by AT&T Illinois Team

The hospital of the future is on its way to becoming a reality — and it’s in Chicago.  

AT&T is working with Rush University Medical Center and the Rush System for Health to establish the first standards-based 5G-enabled hospital in the United States.  The 5G technology will help connect various applications, people, devices, robotics and more.

With the help of AT&T’s 5G network, the clinically-integrated Rush System for Health is poised to take advantage of technologies like Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) — a cloud-based IT service environment at the edge of the network — and other advanced network-related technologies as they become available.

AT&T MEC services will enable Rush to manage its cellular traffic over both its local and wide area networks. Rush will better satisfy network communications and application processing needs for its data, enhance the various use cases across its system and improve the patient experiences.

The Rush collaboration with AT&T goes far beyond network services. They will create opportunities to explore using mobile technology in technology-driven therapies, improving hospital operations and enhancing the patient experience.

The exciting project will kick off this month and create learnings through most of 2019.
