Our Values

About 1

Data-Driven

We believe that the best health products have strong data to support their claims. For every project and company we work with, we strive to source the right data, bring it to the forefront and let it speak for itself. For early-stage companies, we help identify the data needed and build a roadmap for how to generate it.

About 2

Truth-Seeking

In everything we do with our clients, partners, employees and MDisruptors, we seek the truth. We have a speak-up culture: If we see something, we say something. When we identify opportunities for our clients to build their health products with a more evidence based approach—we make those recommendations.

About 3

Always Objective

MDisrupt is a company that serves all of healthtech equally. In order to do this well, we strive to be objective and not have biases or vested interests in any company. We aim to create new standards for how health products are created. Where there is subjectivity, we seek multiple expert opinions as part of any project or assessment.

About 4

People First

People are at the heart of everything we do. We exist so that impactful health products can get to the people that need them quickly. We believe that the key to accomplishing this is by building collaborative partnerships between healthtech companies and health industry experts based on mutual respect and a shared mission to “go fast responsibly”.
