About the Host:
Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center opened in April of 2013. Jump was made possible, in part, from a generous $25 million donation named for Jump Trading, a Chicago-based trading firm. A collaboration between OSF HealthCare and the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria, Jump is a world-class facility transforming health care through education, research, and innovation. Over 84,000 learning experiences occurred at Jump in the past year, and that number is expected to grow steadily as our programs expand. State-of-the-art simulation devices and facilities attract the finest minds in clinical education and provide the highest level of medical research, training and innovation. Collaboration throughout our community, the region, the nation, and even the world happens every day at Jump and is the cornerstone of our vision to transform health care.
The third and fourth floor of the Jump building are currently being prepared to house the Performance Improvement, Data Analytics, Telehealth, ARCHES, and Clinical Research departments of OSF HealthCare. The rational is that research and development are at the core of what we are doing. Engineers will need access to data to understand what the opportunities are, clinicians to be subject matter experts in the monitoring, care delivery and population health data, simulated environments to test and refine their research before they are tested in clinical trials, and ultimately performance improvement to disseminate the new processes and technologies across our Ministry. This is a place where we can work on projects that will help us make leap growth solutions.

Who Should Attend SimGHOSTS Events?
Anyone responsible for the technical operation of a medical simulation lab including full-time or part-time Sim Techs, or clinical educators tasked with operating the day-to-day of simulation spaces. As well, anyone evaluating medical-simulation based technology should strongly consider attending as most major industry vendors are encouraged to attend.
Other meetings are better suited for clinical educators specifically looking to learn how to teach with medical simulation.
*New Thought* Administrators of simulation programs should also consider sending their institution's AV and IT related staff members who are responsible for supporting the simulation program. In our most recent events, staff from AV and IT departments outside of the healthcare simulation program found immense benefit from participating in SimGHOSTS to better understand the needs of their institution's simulation program!
