Ariadne Labs is a joint center for health systems innovation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. 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. Ariadne Labs currently has research programs in the areas of childbirth, surgery, palliative care, and primary health care.
The Home Hospital initiative at Ariadne Labs is on a quest to reimagine hospital-level care at home for all communities by designing, testing, and scaling evidence-based patient centered home-based solutions. We transform patient experience using accessible technology, building multidisciplinary teams, and informing policy. Some of our current projects include an international randomized controlled trial to generate evidence of the potential of this model of care in rural settings and designing an acute care home hospital solution for behavioral health patients.
The Home Hospital International Fellow will participate as a full-time member of our team contributing to current innovation efforts, research projects, and building partnerships across institutions. The Fellow is expected to have a solid background as a clinician and/or an academic in the field of hospital-level care at home.
The ideal candidate is expected to demonstrate appropriate preparation to enable them to fully benefit from the experience, including exposure to academic research and competency in English. Applications may come from any relevant profession as long as there is demonstrated evidence of work in the field of hospital-level care at home.
