Participating in ECHO Clinics
Created in 2003 at the University of New Mexico, Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a video-based tele-mentoring tool designed to support rural primary care clinics in the delivery of specialty care.
Through Project ECHO, primary care sites are connected via webcams to a multidisciplinary team of experts every week. After a brief welcome and friendly introductions, Clinic sessions start with a 25-minute lesson, delivered by the expert team, focusing on a relevant clinical topic.
Following the didactic session, primary care sites are invited to present challenging clinical cases that will be staffed with the network. Case discussions will be facilitated by the multidisciplinary team, collecting clinical recommendations that reflect clinical guidelines and best practices.
The ECHO clinics are grant-funded. There is no cost to you.
