Health Care Engineering Systems Center

About the Partnership

OSF HealthCare and Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center work with the University of Illinois Health Care Engineering Systems Center in the initiative, Applied Research for Community Health through Engineering and Simulation (ARCHES).

ARCHES provides grants to clinicians and engineers to work together in developing new technology and services that will improve healthcare quality and patient safety.

Strategic Partners | HCESC Logo


The Health Care Engineering Systems Center (HCESC) aims to develop new technologies and cyber-physical systems, enhance medical training and practice, and in collaboration with key partners, drive the training of health professionals.

The outstanding promise of simulation to impact patient care can be augmented through a multidisciplinary approach.

  • The focus is on applying technologies which have been reduced to practice, but not necessarily tested for clinical or simulation use.
  • The applied research agenda is the study of these technologies for and in simulation.
  • The studies will demonstrate improved clinical outcomes, reductions of cost, and improved quality through simulation.
