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.
