Bridging the qualitative “humanistic” analysis with quantitative “technological” protocols to maximize the end-user experience, open data paradigms, and data gathering requirements defined by government agencies and nonprofits.
We build technological tools and programs centered on lived-in experiences and professional perspectives. Our team’s deep understanding of trauma guides our technology and programs for a human-centered approach. Based on academic research and validation, HTI strives to create tools that positively help our most vulnerable populations.
