California and Texas Collaborate to Develop Pediatric Devices

It has been four years since California’s Consortium for Technology and Innovation in Pediatrics (CTIP) was established at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in collaboration with the University of Southern California. Further expanding its reach, the consortium broke through state lines in 2014 with expansion to Houston, Texas to include pediatric experts at Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine.

With aggressive focus, CTIP’s project portfolio has quickly grown to include some of the most innovative diagnostic and therapeutic pediatric devices – from a novel ventilation management system that allows healthcare professionals to better monitor respiratory performance data to a sensor module that monitors hydrocephalus shunt’s operational status in real time.
