The Health Care Engineering Systems Center (HCESC) at the College of Engineering of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will be displaying their cutting edge simulators at the International Medical Simulation in Healthcare Conference (IMSH) Expo in partnership with OSF Healthcare, Peoria, IL, in Los Angeles, CA, January 13-17, 2018.

At Exhibit booth #141 they will provide hands-on demonstrations of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) Clinical Support Systems, including VR tracheal intubation simulator and AR trainer for sepsis care and surgical robot set up.

HCESC has become the internationally recognized center for advanced simulation, specifically in the development of virtual and physical medical simulators and healthcare robotics.

The University of Illinois has partnered with OSF HealthCare on the Jump Applied Research for Community Health through Engineering and Simulation (Jump ARCHES) initiative.  As the home to Jump ARCHES $62.5 Million endowment, HCESC, in collaboration with Jump Simulation and Education Center at OSF Healthcare, focuses on creating simulation and educational tools through imaging, health information technology, novel sensors and devices, and human factors engineering.

IMSH is the world’s largest conference dedicated to healthcare simulation learning, research and scholarship, offering 250 sessions in various formats, from large plenary sessions to small, interactive immersive courses. It is also considered to be the educational and networking event for the simulation world.

HCESC will have the opportunity to reach a diverse audience of 2,800+ physicians, nurses, educators, administrators, center operations directors, technology specialists and other health care providers involved in medical simulation.

At this event HCESC will be looking for collaborators from industry, institutions and citizen inventors to develop custom simulators which leverage the latest in Artificial Intelligence, VR and AR. The goal of the HCESC partnership with Jump Simulation is to improve healthcare outcomes through advanced simulation.
