Technology for your child's needs

Cook Children's experts are here to help you learn about ways technology can support your child's care.

Technology is designed to make life easier, and our Health Technology Advocates (Techsperts) are here to walk you through every step. From decisions on choosing the right technology, getting it connected, and syncing devices to scheduling telemedicine visits through your patient portal. Cook Children's wants your technology to connect when and where you need it.

We're here for you!

Consultations with our Techsperts are available by appointment or referral. Walk-ins are also welcome. Our staff can help you learn about medical devices. We'll also work with on you on choosing and using the right technology for your child's needs.

Some of the ways we can help:

  • Hands-on experience with the actual devices recommended for your child's care.
  • Syncing your technology to devices, apps, and the patient portal.
  • Learn about some of the apps our healthcare team recommends for families.
  • Teaching you all about the world of virtual care and telemedicine.

Once you're comfortable with your technology, our Techsperts are happy to help you learn how to navigate your MyCookChildren's patient portal. The portal makes it easy to manage appointments, prescriptions and communicate with your child's health care team. It's Peak service and support you can count on.

You can also schedule time for us to work with your child. We'll help them understand their device, how to use it, and how it can help them. All at a level based on age and maturity, as well as your doctor's recommendations.

Technology can be fun

While you're consulting with a Health Technology Advocate, children can take an imaginative adventure through Peaks the Dragon's World. This 90" touch screen is a completely interactive experience where kids (and parents too) can meet our favorite dragon and his friends, choose their own journeys, even change the scenery.

Our easy-to-use technology makes it possible for kids of all ages and abilities to participate. It's like medicine that "Peaks" the imagination.
