Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Pediatric Technology Center

The Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Pediatric Technology Center brings clinical experts together with Georgia Tech scientists and engineers to develop technological solutions to problems in the health and care of children. The Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Pediatric Technology Center provides extraordinary opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration in pediatrics, creating breakthrough discoveries that often can only be found at the intersection of multiple disciplines. These collaborations also allow us to bring discoveries to the clinic and the bedside, thereby enhancing the lives of children and young adults.

From the clinical bedside to the home environment, implantable device to surgical robot, the way we practice and provide healthcare is changing. In general, the medicines or medical devices invented for adults cannot be effectively applied to children – kids have different bodies, biochemistries, and medical needs. Doctors are forced to adapt many devices, tools, and medicines originally created for the adult population to work, sometimes imperfectly, for kids. The Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Pediatric Technology Center is changing that – putting the pediatric patient first.
