A recent National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2) survey explored the barriers that military health care providers face when they try to use technology with psychological health treatment. In response, Deployment Health Clinical Center (DHCC) launched a pilot program to offer solutions. The Tech into Care pilot will help providers at Navy and Air Force behavioral health clinics use five popular mobile apps with their treatment practices.

There is promising evidence that technology can support the use of evidence-based behavioral health treatments, as well as serve as a link to improve patient engagement and adherence to treatment. Yet clinicians have limited guidance on how to effectively and safely implement these resources, especially mobile applications (apps).
