Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes), a collaborative model of medical education and care management.

Join a teleECHO™ Clinic!

Project ECHO®

Project ECHO® is a collaborative model of medical education and care management that provides primary care providers with the skills and knowledge to treat complex patients in their practices. It was developed at the University of New Mexico to improve health outcomes for underserved populations while reducing access barriers and the cost of care. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks. Expert teams conduct virtual, teleECHO clinics with community providers (ECHO partners) via videoconference.

Moving Knowledge, Not Patients

Through telementoring, ECHO creates access to high-quality specialty care in local communities.

  • HUB and spoke knowledge-sharing networks create a learning loop
  • Community providers learn from specialists
  • Community providers learn from each other
  • Specialists learn from providers as best practices emerge

When you join a teleECHO clinic, you’ll get:

  • Access to specialty knowledge
  • CME credits for participation
  • A community of practice and learning
  • An opportunity to discuss complex cases from your practice

TeleECHO clinics

TeleECHO clinics use a learning-by-doing model. Within the clinic, there are monthly, one-hour video conferencing sessions. During each session, experts share their expertise with ECHO partners using mentoring, guidance, feedback, and didactic education to help them manage their complex patient cases.

There are two parts to each session:

  1. A 15-minute presentation on a specific, predetermined clinical topic
  2. A 45-minute discussion, where ECHO partners share clinical cases and receive feedback and treatment recommendations from peers and subject matter experts
