Jump focuses its research, scholarly, and innovative activities on creating educational programs and supportive technology/devices that disseminate the use of simulation across the region.

Our goals are to:

  1. Close the gap between innovation and adoption
  2. Investigate how health care simulation may be best used to increase health care quality and safety while lowering its expense
  3. Determine appropriate implementation of simulation to improve patient care and increase patient safety

The innovation and performance improvement laboratories (800 and 6200 square feet respectively) house some of our most exciting work. Partnered with University of Illinois engineers, these spaces support work in human factors engineering, health care systems engineering, and device design and analysis.
