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.
