Check out push notifications: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/add-notifications

Not sure on exact scenario here but you can use these to send notifications with parameters to launch the app into the notification. Flow usually feeds the notification.

You can email from the app but not while it’s inactive. However the same approach can be used with flow. Have flow have a trigger or a repeat scheduled run to do checked then send email using an email task having a link in the email that starts the app using URL parameters to navigate and start you in a screen with that data.
