Jump ARCHES is a non-profit accelerator dedicated to funding and developing new initiatives utilizing imaging, health information technology, human factors and a variety of other disciplines to enhance medical simulation and education.
This program is made possible through an initial $25 million endowment, which offers Requests for Proposals to members of faculty of the University of Illinois College of Engineering at Urbana-Champaign, members of faculty of the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria and OSF HealthCare System clinicians.
It is our goal to improve the quality of care and outcomes for patients worldwide while reducing health care costs.
AIM is a global, socially innovative collaboration pairing clinicians and engineers with the most advanced imaging and modeling technologies available. It is our mission to leverage existing, emerging and disruptive technologies in imaging and modeling to diagnose and index pathological conditions for use in the treatment of patients and the education of clinicians. Through the generosity of our benefactors and partners, AIM is able to provide leading edge solutions that improve patient outcomes at no cost to them and that transform our understanding of human anatomy and pathology.
