Ariadne Labs

In January 2018, Stanford University Department of Medicine (DOM) joined a health system collaborative led by Ariadne Labs to implement the Serious Illness Care Program throughout the organization, with a focus on DOM Divisions.

The Ariadne Labs Serious Illness Care Program Collaborative has expanded to include over 30 health systems in the US and the UK.

The Serious Illness Care Program was developed by Atul Gawande, Susan Block and their partners at Ariadne Labs. The lab, a joint center between Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, develops scalable health care solutions to deliver better care at critical moments in patients’ lives. Some of these solutions include the Better Birth initiative and the world-renowned WHO Safe Surgery Checklist.
