For the last decade, Ariadne Labs has been working to solve several problems in health care for patients with serious illnesses, the elderly and those nearing the end of their lives. Too often, patients do not receive the kind of care they want when either managing a serious illness and/ or approaching the end of their lives. Family members often feel unsupported in helping their loved ones through this time. Loneliness and isolation are increasingly being linked to more serious health conditions. Amidst the complexity and cost of serious illnesses, end of life and aging, health care systems around the world lack the structure to support patients and the providers who care for them. Our solutions are focused on transforming health care systems to empower providers and their patients with the tools to improve patient outcomes through enhanced communication and better alignment between patients and their providers.
