Jump ARCHES

MAJOR JUMP ARCHES EXPANSION OF $50 MILLION ANNOUNCED JULY 16, 2019

Jump ARCHES Partnership Expands Beyond Medical Simulation & Education to Include Social and Behavioral Determinants of Health; Endowment Now Exceeds $100 Million

From the Grainger College of Engineering Press Release:

A longstanding partnership between OSF HealthCare and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s (U of I) Grainger College of Engineering for joint research to revolutionize clinical simulation, health care systems and medical education will expand dramatically through additional endowments. This will fuel a new generation of joint research projects to include mobile sensors, Internet of Things applications, data analytics and understanding social and behavioral determinants of health. Known as Jump ARCHES (Applied Research for Community Health through Engineering and Simulation), the partnership was established in 2013 with $62.5 million in support. With new commitments of $50 million, it will now be backed by a total of $112.5 million in endowment support.

The multifaceted expansion includes a $25 million gift from the DiSomma Family Foundation to the endowment pool held within the OSF HealthCare Foundation, an additional $12.5 million commitment from the OSF HealthCare Foundation, and the equivalent of $12.5 million in endowment support from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Jump ARCHES expansion

Jump ARCHES expansion will increase the types of investigators who may apply for funding beyond The Grainger College of Engineering. That expansion includes:

    • Social and behavioral determinants of health
    • Health care and wellness sensors
    • Mobile health devices
    • Artificial intelligence and machine learning
    • Health data analytics and management
    • Human factors and ergonomics
    • Social robotics and health automation
    • Mobility options for health and wellness
