Fullerton Health Partners M1 to Launch 5G-enabled Telemedicine Service to Seafarers

On 24 April, we signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with M1 Limited to introduce a 5Genabled telemedicine service to seafarers working onboard vessels out in the sea. This includes live teleconsultations with shore-based healthcare professionals and 5G-enabled drones to deliver medicine to ship crews from the shore.

With this partnership, we aim to harness the 5G network to provide virtual healthcare solutions, including telehealth and remote patient monitoring and care team collaboration as the health and safety of port workers and sailors are critical to global trade and supply chains. The future of healthcare digitalization is exciting, especially with the innovations that will come from 5G mobility.
