A collaboration between the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Ariadne Labs is a Boston based healthcare innovation center that is focused on using real world data, a rigorous scientific approach and best practices to uncover and share programs that improve patient care around the world. You can read about their mission here.
I was first introduced to Ariadne labs when I photographed their founder, Atul Gawande, for his book Being Mortal. Dr. Gawande is practicing surgeon at the Brigham, the author of several best selling books, a writer for the New Yorker, a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health and at Harvard Medical school, among many, many other things.
