Ariadne Labs is committed to saving lives & reducing suffering for patients everywhere. We aim to create simple, scalable solutions for critical moments at all stages of the health care journey. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has rapidly become a critical moment for the entire world, and with it, comes the need for innovative solutions. As the situation escalates across the globe, we want to keep the public informed and empowered.
Below, you’ll find guidance and resources both for the community and for clinicians working at the frontlines. As information regarding COVID-19 continues to develop and evolve, we will work to update our resources to incorporate the latest evidence.
As COVID-19 spreads quickly from Europe and Asia to the rest of the world, hospitals play a critical role in treatment of the disease. However, they have also become hot zones for transmission. With rising community spread, it is increasingly important for health care workers to have access to credible information on how best to protect themselves while serving on the frontlines, and for hospitals to be prepared for a surge in patients requiring care.
Drawing on lessons learned from colleagues facing this crisis worldwide, experts from Ariadne Labs have developed guidelines to inform best practices in COVID-19 response protocols across clinical areas. These guidelines are based on expert opinion and the latest available evidence. As information on COVID-19 continues to develop and evolve, we will update this guidance to reflect the best available evidence.

Surgical care is a foundation of any health system, with both elective and emergency procedures contributing to the health of our populations. In the face of COVID-19, hospitals and surgeons must act immediately to ensure that systems are prepared to support essential surgical care while also protecting patients and staff and conserving valuable resources.
The Ariadne Labs Safe Surgery/Safe Systems team has developed guidelines to prepare surgical units for COVID-19 response. These guidelines have been published in the Annals of Surgery.
Further Clinical Resources will be updated daily as resources are developed.
