The partnership will accelerate Intellect’s growth across Asia.
IHH Healthcare has invested in Singapore-based mental health startup, Intellect, to expand its continuum of care for its patients, corporate clients, and employees.
As a strategic investor, IHH will co-develop and customise its mental health programmes with Intellect’s digital services, including telehealth coaching, clinical therapy, psychiatry, self-guided cognitive behavioural therapy-based programmes, urgent distress support, and mental health screening.
Maternity patients from Gleneagles Hospital Singapore will be the first to try these services.
