Agathos leverages individual and group insights as its main catalyst for variation reduction and behavior change. Agathos’ platform features a library of ready-to-go insights on individual variation in practice patterns, both where established guidelines may exist (e.g., labs, imaging, medications), and with clinical “grey areas” (e.g., discharge efficiency and order time, disposition status) difficult to coach through point-of-care tools.
Metrics by themselves are insufficient for behavior change. Even objectively better metrics fall short for physicians who find themselves looking worse on paper than they did before. Even where Hawthorne effects associated with transparency deliver short-term gains, in the long run, physicians and managers still miss opportunities for learning and collaboration. Agathos is the first variation reduction solution that makes metrics fundamentally actionable by leading not with outcomes, but actions.
