Health Guide

| Greater Boston Area

Job Title:  Health Guide              

Company Description:

Firefly Health is a new primary care start-up that launched in 2018 to give more people convenient access to better care. Founded by experienced physician innovators and technology entrepreneurs, Firefly reimagines the traditional care model by connecting patients with a dedicated care team they can easily access through in-app messaging, video, and in-person appointments. 

Because patients work with a dedicated care team, they get to know their providers over time, creating a care journey that is continuous and highly personalized. Care teams learn what matters most to their patients, help them create health and wellness goals, and support them as they pursue them.
