Integrated Digital Technology Research (i-mHealth) Collaborative focuses on mobile app research and other technological interventions to improve mental health outcomes of underrepresented patient populations. The group is led by Dr. Maggie Emerson of UNMC College of Nursing. The group specifically focuses on research within the integrated care setting where patients can receive collaborative, interdisciplinary care within the primary care environment through the strategic consultation and team-based approach which leverages a psychiatric nurse practitioner and behavioral health provider to support care.
