Frequently Asked Questions
What is Project ECHO?
Project ECHO is an innovative health care program developed to treat chronic and complex disease in rural and underserved areas through the use of telemedicine technology. Through the use of this interactive technology, Project ECHO bridges the gap between specialty care and providers in community settings.
Project ECHO works by creating an effective and efficient way for community providers to interface with the university specialist to receive guidance, treatment strategy, and continuing medical education.
Project ECHO also builds the capacity of community providers and empowers them by building their knowledge and skills in specialty areas.
How do patients make an appointment at ECHO?
Patients are not seen during Project ECHO Clinics. Our Tele-ECHO clinics connect community providers to specialists who help co-manage patients with common chronic conditions. You may wish to present a case to a specialist or simply join others in the spirit of learning, similar to grand rounds. Clinician partners include physicians, mid-levels, clinic nurses, medical assistants, community health workers.
