While 5G networks can support variety of smart health services, but applications like telesurgery, holographic communication, and augmented/virtual reality are already emphasizing its limitations. 6G mobile networks are predicted to proliferate over the next decade in order to solve these limitations. Currently, academia and industry are concentrating their efforts on the 6G network, which is expected to be the next major game-changer in the telecommunication industry and will significantly impact all other related verticals. This article aims to identify and discuss the role of 6G in smart health applications. We shed light on several critical 6G technologies that are projected to enable future smart health services. Moreover, multiple 6G-enabled smart health applications and associated challenges are reviewed.
