By Andrew Trees, Agathos Co-Founder & CEO
Welcome to the new website and web blog! We invite you to follow us as we explore topics spanning behavioral economics, practice economics, health economics, health technology, medical practice, and everything in between.
"Insights" was created to reflect the Agathos values: ownership, transparency, curiosity, community. Ownership is our individual and collective responsibility for improving patient outcomes, regardless of where we sit in healthcare's industry. Transparency is the means by which we empower people with greater felt ownership, informed decision-making, and community participation. Curiosity is our instinct for continually pursuing knowledge, investing in self-discovery, and never settling for the status quo. Community is what we are: a group of humans who, individually, will not live forever but together will forever strive.
There is so much work to be done toward making valuable care obvious and normal, and Agathos is but one actor. We see an as-of-yet unrealized opportunity to better engage physicians with health technology and health informatics. Again, we invite you into this vision, to tell us when we are off base, and to continue to encourage us when you think we are on to something.
