We are bringing healthcare home

HumanFirst is building the operational infrastructure to support decentralized trials and distributed care at home

Our Core Values

Human first

We strive to reduce human suffering by taking time to understand those who use, make, and are supported by our products

Support curiosity with rigor

Breakthroughs occur when an open mind’s ideas are further developed via the scientific method

Obligation to speak up

Any team member in meaningful disagreement is obligated to dissent and to propose an alternative hypothesis

Own your craft

Like a first-class craftsman, we never stop learning and striving towards mastery

Both relationships and autonomy matter

We believe in the non-duality of cultivating a strong community while protecting individual liberties

Every minute counts

Every moment matters when human health is at stake. We act swiftly, resourcefully, and intentionally — speed is a habit
