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 -- for those who make, use, and are supported by our products. Empathize: take the time to understand and share needs, frustrations, and desires.

Scientific rigor with playful curiosity

We revere the scientific method, and develop novel approaches when existing methods no longer serve the question at hand. Breakthroughs occur when the mind is engaged, open, and curious.

Obligation to speak up

Every member of the team, regardless of rank, is obligated to dissent if s/he disagrees with a prevailing decision and to take the initiative to propose an alternative hypothesis.

Own your craft

Like a first-class craftsman, we never stop learning and improving 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.
