What is Project ECHO?
Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a movement to connect local primary care teams with inter-disciplinary specialist teams to spread knowledge and amplify local capacity to provide best practice care for complex chronic health conditions. ECHO’s goal is to enable rural and traditionally underserved populations to receive high-quality care, when they need it, close to home. This low-cost, high-impact intervention is achieved by leveraging technology to connect expert mentors and multiple local primary care providers in online video-conferencing TeleECHO clinics.
The ECHO model™ links expert specialist teams at an academic institution with prescribers in local communities to address the inadequate supply of culturally appropriate and accessible specialty care in rural and traditionally underserved areas. Together, they participate in weekly teleECHO clinics, which are like virtual grand rounds combined with mentoring and patient case presentations. TeleECHO clinics focused on the treatment of substance use disorders and behavioral health disorders have been operating since 2005 with significant success in increasing the number of waivered prescribers as well as improving geographic access to medication-based treatment in rural and underserved areas.
