5G is all about integrating new industries in the design of this whole new generation, where the mobile broadband connection is not the one and only use case on focus. Within the umbrella of 5G, other technologies are brought to the surface enabling new ways of communication with unprecedented effects on many sectors of society such as healthcare. This article focuses on a practical implementation of a medical-oriented Internet of Skills application, where the doctor is able to perform remote diagnosis and palpation with the use of cutting edge haptic technology. We present an examination of the main medical socio-economic drivers, as well as the description of specific technologies used in this practical demonstration. All this, with the main objective of delivering a proof of concept for the design and planning of multi-modal communications in 5G.
