Pediatric healthcare continues to be an opportunity for digital health and device innovation because of the smaller market and unique physiology. The need for innovation in this area continues to grow, with solutions spanning from patient experience to wearables, remote monitoring, and surgical devices. Technologies built for kids include Polyvascular‘s valves for congenital heart disease. Others are applicable for adults but designed with kids in mind including Vitls‘s FDA cleared, non-invasive vital sign monitor. Institutions in the Texas Medical Center are seeking to work with companies that are focusing on enhancing patient-centered pediatric care and creating a more seamless experience for young patients and their providers.
Texas Medical Center Innovation has opened applications for TMCx, a medical device and digital health accelerator focused on building clinical partnerships. Through TMCx, companies access clinical champions and stakeholders across the TMC campus. Participating companies develop relationships with health systems toward development of a pilot, clinical study, or joint development agreement. Discover more and apply here.
