How technology can help create a calming environment for pediatric mental health emergencies

Thursday, September 23rd, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among teens, accounting for more deaths than all other medical illnesses combined, according to the CDC. Pediatric emergency department visits for mental health conditions increased during the pandemic — further proving children’s mental and behavioral health needs are now more important than ever.

To address this ongoing increase of mental health emergencies, Children’s Health in Dallas teamed up with Philips and Recornect to create and pilot innovative rooms with advanced technology, interactive screens, ambient lighting, sound and scenery that can be adapted to serve children and teens who are experiencing a mental health emergency.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:
  • About the current pediatric healthcare crisis
  • How environment changes can help de-escalate stressful medical emergencies
  • How to co-create an innovative solution with technology companies
