Clinicians + Engineers


The Jump Applied Research for Community Health through Engineering and Simulation program is a strategic partnership with the top-ranked University of Illinois College of Engineering. 

Jump ARCHES focuses on the technologies and techniques of clinical simulation and its impact on patient care.

Applied Research Agenda

This endowed fund supports collaborative efforts between engineers and health care providers at OSF HealthCare and University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria as they work to solve health care challenges through innovative solutions.

These teams work together and use the unique environment of Jump to hypothesize, test and redesign tools, techniques and processes being used by caregivers every day.

Through Jump ARCHES, our studies are intended to demonstrate improved clinical outcomes, reductions of cost and higher quality practices through simulation.

Request for Proposals
