About us. We're Sexual Health Innovations.

Sexual Health Innovations is a non-profit organization dedicated to using the power of technology to improve sexual health and well-being in the United States. We created So They Can Know in an attempt to increase rates of STD partner notification, and we created this website to help us evaluate whether or not So They Can Know works.

Will your patients use it? Let's find out.

We don't know whether or not So They Can Know will work for every patient population. Evaluations of similar services have shown mixed results. But hey, it's probably better than nothing, and we won't know unless we try.
