Translational Research Programs

Translational Research | T-PhasesTranslational research rapidly processes discovery, clinical application and public knowledge. Translational can be identified in phases which can often overlap from discovery to outcomes.

Closely aligned to Applied Research, the Translational Research program at Jump seeks to bring new technologies and techniques into our clinical spaces.

There are several existing examples of new technologies that are giving us better, more objective data. Some of these are telling us about how care is provided, and others are tools that give patients better access to health care.

The different t-phases are as follows:

  • T0: Health care problem identification
  • T1: Move basic discovery to appropriate applications
  • T2: Evidence-based observational period
  • T3: Move evidence-based guidelines, delivery of research
  • T4: Evaluate real-world health outcomes of health population, health impact
  • Care Innovations

    Translational Research | Care Innovations ThumbJump is partnering with Intel-GE Care Innovations on research that will place smart sensor systems in a COPD patient’s home.

    Future studies will determine if the system impacts outcomes in the management of chronically ill patients.

  • Team Neurodynamics

    Translational Research | Team Neurodynamics ThumbJump is partnering with Team Neurodynamics, a California-based research group.

    The research will determine how healthcare teams assimilate, interact, and ultimately, succeed or fail in the task at hand.
