In medicine, we have long recognized that wide disparities exist amongst physician practice styles, and that these differences can have an enormous impact on the cost and quality of healthcare. But too often, we have concluded that if we could simply standardize medical care and make every doctor look and practice the same way, that we would have a better healthcare system.
But what if we could embrace the heterogeneity? What if we could understand “outlier” status and match physicians to the patients and conditions that they managed best? What if we could optimize the way a team of physicians performed together to care for a population of people?
Kyruus was founded by a team of physicians and technologists who saw an opportunity to leverage Big Data to better measure the variation across physician practice styles, and then develop solutions to help maximize the value of every physician in the context of healthcare delivery networks.
The name "Kyruus" is derived from the word chiral (\'ki-rel\), which describes a form that cannot be superimposed on its own mirror image. It refers to the multiple professional "personas" that physicians carry throughout their careers – whether as researchers, educators, administrators, advisors, collaborators, consultants, or clinicians. The two "u’s" represent the ability for Big Data to help physicians understand
their potential once they (and others) see what we are best at doing.
