Exchange of MOU agreement between DOC2US CEO and co-founder Dr Raymond Choy and National Sports Institute CEO Ahmad Faezal Md Ramli, witnessed by Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh.
KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 29): DOC2US has inked a deal with the National Sports Institute (ISN) to provide equitable, accessible and holistic healthcare to national athletes.
In a statement on Tuesday, the digital health and e-prescriptions provider said the added mental and physical health access will be provided through a new hybrid healthcare support programme introduced by the ISN.
DOC2US chief executive officer and co-founder Dr Raymond Choy said that due to the nature of their practice, athletes are especially prone to mental stress and various mental health issues, including depression, anxiety and other more severe cases.
“This is all on top of the prevailing physical health issues which are staple in the sports industry.
“This collaborative effort is a step forward to tackling those challenges,” he said.
Choy said the programme, which has been in operation since the SEA Games in May 2023, provides a hybrid form of healthcare, both physically and virtually, through the application of digital health technology.
He said the services available to national athletes through this programme are free virtual health advisory, virtual consultation and e-prescription, and physical home support, by board approved medical professionals.
“DOC2US’ mental healthcare platform powered by TeleHope Health will enable access to mental healthcare services for athletes as well, such as mental health screening, free mental health advisory and teleconsultations with licensed psychiatrists and psychologists of TeleHope Health,” he said.
