About Us

We are a joint health system innovation center of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health working to save lives and reduce suffering by creating scalable solutions that improve health care delivery at the most critical moments for people everywhere.

Our vision is for health systems to deliver the best possible care for every patient, everywhere, every time. Our programs and projects are at varying stages of development, from prototyping to wide-scale dissemination around the world.

Ariadne Labs
Ariadne Labs’ Workspace

We are named for Ariadne, the Greek goddess who showed Theseus the way out of the Minotaur’s maze with a simple thread. At Ariadne Labs, we provide simple threads to guide patients, doctors, and families through critical moments in their lives with compassionate, simple and practical solutions.

Ariadne Labs is a joint center between Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. We are located in the heart of Boston’s Fenway neighborhood in close to proximity to our founding and affiliate institutions.

The Ariadne Labs Way

The work of Ariadne Labs is rooted in rigorous scientific methodology and best practices in industry for implementation. Each program and every project is built on a foundation of innovative use of informatics and measurement, implementation and improvement science, and professional program management. We call this the Ariadne Labs Way.

As we seek to transform how care is delivered around the world, we ensure that our programs can be effectively adapted and successfully implemented across thousands of health care facilities and diverse cultures. We continually evaluate and monitor outcomes to ensure that our programs are improving health systems, providing better patient care, and saving lives.
