Project ECHO™ (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a movement to demonopolize knowledge and amplify local capacity to provide best practice care for underserved people all over the world. The ECHO model is committed to addressing the needs of the most vulnerable populations by equipping communities with the right knowledge, at the right place, at the right time.
Project ECHO transforms the way education and knowledge are delivered to reach more people in rural and underserved communities.
This low-cost, high-impact intervention is accomplished by linking inter-disciplinary specialist teams with multiple clinicians through teleECHO programs. Experts mentor and share their expertise across a virtual network via scenario-based learning, enabling clinicians to apply best practices and lessons learned in their own communities.
