Digital Mental Health Tools for Care Coordination
Our research team has worked with the Northwestern Medicine Division of Ambulatory Care Coordination to develop designs for a digital mental health program. The digital mental health program could help care coordinators, who are nurses and social workers by training, provide whole-person care as they coordinate the physical and mental healthcare for patients who often have multiple chronic conditions and socioeconomic disadvantages. A series of interviews, workflow observations and design elicitation workshops have taken place, and we are preparing for a larger clinical trial in which the resulting digital mental health program will be implemented in the Ambulatory Care Coordination service.
The PI is Emily Lattie, PhD, and the project name is Implementation of Digital Mental Health Tools in Ambulatory Care Coordination.
