ABOUT THE HEALTH CARE ENGINEERING SYSTEMS CENTER
The Health Care Engineering Systems Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign provides clinical immersion and fosters collaboration between engineers and physicians. The goal is to use our expertise in the broad areas of simulation technologies, smart health systems, data analytics, human factors, and medical robotics to design and develop collaborative solutions that improve healthcare outcomes.
We partner with Jump Simulation of OSF HealthCare in Peoria, Illinois, in an innovative relationship known as Applied Research for Community Health through Engineering and Simulation (Jump ARCHES). We are always in search of collaboration partners to develop new and innovative techniques to improve healthcare outcomes. Please contact us if you are a researcher interested in developing technologies related to simulation, VR, smart health, data analytics, human factors, or medical robotics to express interest in working with us.
