New technological innovations are redefining the modern world and revolutionizing the health care industry. With the end of the 4G era in sight, the beginning of 5G promises ultra-fast digital networks and an increasingly interconnected internet of things. How will the relationships between businesses, industries, physicians, and consumers change in a world of unparalleled speed and immersion and a growing internet of things?

On July 19, Governance Studies at Brookings hosted a panel to discuss the technologies that will define 5G and how they influence health care. What does 5G mean for the internet of things? How will connected medicine affect the quality, pricing, and availability of health care? And how will the health industry change as a result?
