We're in This Together's innovative platform assists patients in asking for help



SANTA CLARA, Calif. and SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — September 5, 2023 — Sanford Health and We're in This Together (WiTT) are partnering together to make it easier for patients to ask for the support they need throughout their cancer journey. Combining the ease of an online registry and leveraging online giving, the WiTT Support Registry platform de-stigmatizes asking for help and helps patients meet the non-clinical care needs of facing cancer.


The innovative tool creates visibility into patient needs and addresses access to care, eliminates barriers and helps solve health equity challenges that patients face. Community members can support individual patients financially or through acts of service that lift burdens and allow patients to focus on their health.


"Patients face incredible challenges as they go through cancer treatment," said Medical Director of Sanford Health's Cancer Survivorship program, Dr. Shelby Terstriep. "Their overall care can be impacted by social determinants of health. By measuring this data, we can better understand the challenges they face and ensure that we are proactively helping patients get the wraparound care they deserve."


"As a cancer survivor, I've experienced both the stigma and difficulties associated with asking for help. My personal experience led me to create the WiTT Support Registry, and I'm honored to partner with Sanford Health to help support patients with the non-clinical challenges they are facing," said WiTT Founder & CEO, Rahul Mahadevan. "Together, we can increase compliance and adherence to treatment and boost the odds of survivorship, improving outcomes for all patients."
