Welcome to Peaks Tech Zone!
Technology is designed to make life easier, and our health technology advocates (Techsperts) are here to ensure that includes health care. And with a Peaks Tech Zone at both our Fort Worth and Prosper campuses, Cook Children's Techsperts are ready to help you learn about ways technology can support your child's care and make your health care experience more personalized.

- Portable gaming devices
- Charging cables and batteries
- Wearable devices
- Other technology you may not know you needed
We're at your service
Our Techsperts are happy to help you learn how to set up and 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.
We can also help you learn about medical devices. We'll also work with 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.
- Help your child 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.
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. It's like medicine that "Peaks" the imagination.
