Jump Research leverages simulation and engineering techniques to improve patient safety, ensure access to high-quality health care and bend the cost curve in the medical industry.

Test a concept

Do you have an idea or prototype of technology that you want to investigate further? We can help you design a study that uses simulation to determine the feasibility of your solution.


Validate simulation events

How do you know if the simulation you created is successful? We can help you identify whether your event has increased confidence, changed processes or behaviors and improved patient safety using simulation and engineering research techniques.

Tap into the Research Team


While simulation has the power to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs in health care, it's also a valuable tool to discover opportunities for improvement or innovation.

In-situ simulations
We can help you develop simulation events you can take on the road, facilitating more in-depth needs assessments, improving access to simulation resources and identifying areas for growth.
Reducing costs
Our Jump Engineering team and simulation specialists often work together to create task trainers, moulage and new ways to leverage manikins to remain good stewards.
