Abstract

This paper deals with the description of an effective solution for tele-monitoring and tele-assistance of diabetics patients which resorts to the use of the recently launched 5G cellular networks. The proposed solution allows the provision of a tele-monitoring service for chronic diabetic patients, which provides proactive remote interaction of the patient with a “Healthcare center”. Moreover the paper shows the results of a recent experimentation which is based on the use of 5G network and has been realized in the town of Prato, Italy by presenting the results in terms of main performance indicators and describing the implemented e-health routines. Since these activities are achieved in the framework of one of the recent Italian pilot experimentations of the 5G networks, the presented e-Health services are one the first implementation that is based on this cellular system and take benefit of its outstanding performance.
