Project ECHO: A Revolution in Medical and Care Delivery

Project ECHO is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increase workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, primary care doctors, nurses, and other clinicians learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.
