WITT GROUP TO EXPAND SERVICES IN SOUTH FLORIDA TO HELP PATIENTS NAVIGATE NON-CLINICAL CHALLENGES OF CARE
CLARA, Calif. —
September 27, 2023 — WiTT Group™, Inc. a Digital Health and FinTech
company focused on solving the non-clinical challenges cancer patients face as
they go through treatment, is pleased to announce that it will expand its platform in South Florida. The WiTT Support Registry™ platform addresses
the challenge that every patient dealing with chronic disease faces – asking
for help without feeling as though they are being a burden or an imposition on
others. By incorporating a payment tool
for the cancer population, this social platform makes it easy for patients to
ask for the help they need, and for their friends and family to give in the way
"Many of the patients we treat face
overwhelming challenges that are often a significant burden to them. As an individual who has had extensive years
in the field, one key lesson I've learned is that it's imperative we understand
the greatest needs of our patients while they are going through their cancer
journeys," said Vicki Caraway, Chief Nursing Officer at Miami Cancer Institute,
part of Baptist Health South Florida.
"This platform will give hospitals and
their fundraising teams a new mechanism to give directly to patients and make
an impact. This tool will allow cancer
centers to engage with their local communities to help with the needs of their
patients in ways that they have not been able to do previously," said Dr.
Minesh Mehta, M.D. Deputy Director and Chief of Radiation Oncology with Miami
Cancer Institute, part of Baptist Health South Florida.
in South Florida who can begin utilizing this platform benefit by having an easier way to ask for both
financial and nonfinancial help from a specific group of individuals or "care
circle" they choose. They also have the
option to receive help from a broader group of donors. Families, friends, and colleagues that are
invited by the patient to a private "care circle" no longer have to guess how
they can help and have options and flexibility in the ways they can provide
support. The platform will also allow
community organizations and donors to see at the individual level, what
patients in their community need help with, and it gives them a way to directly
support patients in need.
"As a cancer survivor, I know how hard it is
to ask for help and the stigma associated with asking. I look forward to continuing growing out the
platform in a new demographic and continue touching the lives of more patients
who will have the opportunity to utilize this platform," said Rahul Mahadevan,
Founder & CEO of the WiTT Group Inc.
