Inventya has secured a £3.5m collaborative grant to investigate the benefits of 5G community Wi-Fi in health and social care.

The grant, one of only six awarded through the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport 5G Testbeds and Trials programme, will spearhead efforts to make the UK a world leader in 5G.

Inventya’s project partners include Sensor City (a joint venture between the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University), Liverpool City Council, public sector health suppliers, the NHS, local SMEs and a leading UK 5G technology vendor.

Funded for one year in the first instance, the project will demonstrate the impact of 5G technologies in providing better digital health and social care services in deprived digitally excluded communities.  High value technologies including low-cost open source 5G networks, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and the Internet of Things will be deployed across deprived communities in the Liverpool City Region.  The technologies will reduce the digital divide, while measuring the impact on patient monitoring and support, management of loneliness in older adults, aid to independents living in the home and the facilitation of communication between hospitals and the community.
