Ariadne Labs is a joint center for health systems innovation at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard School of Public Health under the leadership of Dr. Atul Gawande. Our goal is to drive scalable solutions for better care at critical moments in people's lives everywhere. Better care means better health outcomes, lower costs, and more actual caring. Critical means solving health systems failures that have major impact, typically touching people by the millions.
To date, we've built teams that have been developing and testing such solutions to improve systems for childbirth, surgical care, and health care decision-making at the end of life. Our work will be expanding to establish other programs as well. Our projects are at various stages of development, from prototyping to wide scale deployment across the world. Current trials involve more than 80 health systems in 70 countries
