Project ECHO® is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increases workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its expansive knowledge-sharing network, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, ECHO® fosters problem solving and interactive case discussion amongst doctors, nurses, and other clinicians, imparting invaluable insight to providing excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.
The Project ECHO® format fosters dialogue and asking any questions you may have on the topic or a patient case in a HIPAA compliant manner is encouraged.
