The use of smartphones has been increasing rapidly and it is expected that in future most people will have a smartphone capable of high speed Internet connection. The capability of smartphones with high definition display, computation power and multitude of sensors made it an excellent candidate for telemedicine application. Telemedicine’s applications and high data medical information generally require high definition visuals and lower latency connection, in addition mobility and reliability. The next generation of wireless communication standard, known as 5G, will provide data speed in (Gigabit per second) Gb/s with lower latency and higher reliability connection, and can be better approach for future telemedicine. In this paper we survey the current state of telemedicine along with examining the characteristics of 5G technology. We also present research challenges concerning 5G and telemedicine.
